back street makeover

Green spaces aren’t the only things that can be transformed, residents brightening up back streets starting with the area behind our Dagenham Shop.

Our neighbouring shopkeepers have already cleared the rubbish and we’d love for you to come along to paint, plant, and celebrate the transformation of a plain street into a pleasant place for everyone to enjoy.

If you want to be part of this makeover project, or transform a back street near you into a safe and open space, please contact AJ:

My name is Azeez and I have lived in Dagenham for over 10 years and been involved with Every One Every Day since the spring programme. I live next door to the shop and always join in where possible,

I’m really interested in community redesign, gardening, making and mending and would like to add a little character to our back streets.
