Community Wardens at Crawley Borough Council have attained the Warden Charter Award for their quality service to the community.
The council’s wardens are the ‘eyes and ears’ of the community with the main priorities of reducing anti-social behaviour and litter.
The team was awarded the charter earlier this month after it was assessed by the London Training and Resource Centre as strong in many areas including tackling anti-social behaviour, graffiti removal, removing abandoned vehicles and working with local volunteers and community groups.
Councillor Ken Trussell, Cabinet member for Environment, said: “It’s great to have our wardens recognised. They do a brilliant job in helping to keep Crawley a safer, cleaner place all year round and they should be commended for that.”
Community wardens patrol the streets from 7.30am to 10pm, seven days a week, 365 days a year and act as a friendly and approachable point of contact for residents while providing a uniformed presence on the streets.
