From neglected to nurtured

For decades the alleyway connecting Vincent Avenue and Hazel Bank, ordinary suburban roads in Kingston Upon Thames have been left neglected…Until residents from both sides decided enough was enough and joined to initiate a change.


Why bother?

Remove fly tipped rubbish and contaminants to make for a healthier, cleaner and nicer environment.

Make the area sustainable for the future and encourage fresh growth and wildlife into the area.

Connecting communities to help improve the quality of life during uncertain times and for future generations.

With generous help from…

The transformation so far

Ordinary people doing extraordinary things


collective trips to the dump by volunteers


Tonne bags of green and landfill waste removed


Bags of dumped asbestos removed


Tonnes of green waste recycled and put to use

…And counting…

Activities for the project

There’s been no better time to get involved with your community and The Vincent Hazel Project is a stella example of how you can make a difference.

  • We’re removing overgrown and unsightly green waste
  • We’re removing rubble and fly tipped rubbish from the area
  • We’re looking to remove unsightly mounds, which are the accumulation of years of fly tipping
  • Once we get to that blank canvas we’ll be looking to promote sustainable green areas and urban wild life
  • We’ll be looking at ways for residents to make the most out of this space and improve their properties – As they see fit.
