Staff from ExxonMobil Fawley joined forces with family members and local residents to take part in the New Forest Spring Clean on Saturday, 13 April 2019.

The tidy-up took place at venues across the New Forest and Waterside under the umbrella of the UK-wide Great British Spring Clean which was held over four weeks in March and April.

The ExxonMobil volunteers focussed their efforts on Fawley village, taking to the streets and parks armed with litter pickers and rubbish sacks.

As well as providing volunteers for the Fawley litter pick, the ExxonMobil site also contributed funds for two local schools – Manor Infant and Blackfield Primary – to purchase litter packs for their own Spring Clean events.

Alison Jones, Community Affairs Manager at ExxonMobil Fawley, said: “The site takes its commitment as a responsible neighbour very seriously.

We see ourselves very much as a member of the local community.

Many of our workforce live locally, so joining the New Forest Spring Clean was a great way for us to show our support to such a worthwhile cause.

It was fantastic for us to work alongside local residents and to help give the village a really good tidy up.

It’s definitely something we would like to do again in the future.”
