As you walk around our neighborhood in coming days, you might notice that it is perceptibly brighter, cleaner and less cluttered.
Thanks to the efforts of Church Hill Association and particularly John Johnson, the popular Alley Rally was revived on Saturday. Three teams of CHA volunteers accompanied by three City of Richmond trash trucks devoted Saturday morning to cleaning the alleys of Church Hill.
Volunteers from CHA met at 8:30 AM Saturday morning, and systematically combed the alleys throughout our community up to M street before handing off the trucks in late morning. Without going into specifics of what was removed, we can happily report that many sofas, mattresses and piles of brush have been relocated to a permanent home.
Thanks to all who helped out with particular thanks to the City of Richmond Department of public Works for providing the trucks and two man crews.
