Earth Day 2024: A Community Triumph in Stanwell Moor

April 19th, 2024

On April 19th, 2024, Stanwell Moor Village witnessed a remarkable gathering of community spirit and environmental stewardship during the Earth Day celebrations hosted at The Anchor. This event, proudly sponsored by the Stanwell Moor Residents Association (SMRA) along with other local businesses and councils, highlighted the community’s commitment to combating pollution and enhancing our local environment.

Community and Commitment: The Heart of Earth Day 2024

The day kicked off at 11:30 AM at The Anchor, where residents and sponsors gathered to discuss the cleanup plan. The initiative, focusing on the theme “Planet vs. Plastics,” aimed to address the pressing issue of plastic pollution. Participants, equipped with enthusiasm and cleanup gear, embarked on a village-wide effort from 12:00 PM to 2:00 PM, working together to collect nearly 75 bags of rubbish.
