St Mary’s spruced up by Karcher Centre Banbury and Banbury BID
Team work to clean up Banbury church graveyard as part of the Banbury Clean project
The project to keep Banbury town centre spick and span continued yesterday as the team from Kärcher Center Banbury used their professional equipment to clean up the area around St Mary’s Church.
The work, in partnership with Banbury BID, is part of the Banbury Clean project. The Karcher team have already transformed Banbury Market Place sprucing up that area in July.
Yesterday’s clean up work included a thorough litter pick completed by the Banbury BID team.
The work was undertaken after a site survey had been completed, with added importance as St Mary’s Church is the only Grade 1 listed building in Banbury. Checks included ensuring there was sufficient drainage.
During the clean no detergent was used with just hot water in use. The Karcher Center team regulated the water pressure used to ensure an effective clean without causing any damage.
The Banbury Clean project began as coronavirus lockdown restrictions started to be lifted earlier in the summer. At the time Jo Holland, Banbury BID Manager, said, “We want people to feel confident to come into Banbury town centre.
“We’ve pledged to make Banbury more vibrant and attractive for everyone and now is a good opportunity for us to spruce up our historic market town.”
Tom Mitchell, Kärcher Center Banbury Manager, said: “Here at Kärcher Center Banbury, we wanted to do all we can to support our local town and help make a difference with the array of different cleaning solutions that Kärcher has to offer. We are proud to be working with Banbury BID in an effort to clean up Banbury town and make visitors feel safe and confident in returning”.
