Nicola Cooper, who runs Bargain Booze at Cheadle's High Street is appealing for dedicated townsfolk to restore community spirit and to revive pride in the town once more.
Following a spike in litter, weeds and broken glass in recent weeks, Nicola, of Charles Street, decided to take action by organising a community clear up.
Nicola, along with her mum, Christine Broad, who also manages the Bargain Booze store, will be meeting with budding volunteers outside their High Street shop-front on Sunday (August 5).
She said: “We just want a team of people who want to make a difference to the town.
“They can come along and spend as long as they want, any time helps, they can bring their own trowels or we can do our best to provide our own equipment, litter-pickers, bags and stuff.
“We want to restore pride back into the town, it’s simple and if everyone pitches in, it’ll be easy.”
Anyone interested in being a part of the team of volunteers is urged to meet the team on the high street at 10am on Sunday.
