Organisation Summary

Keep Alexandra Clyde Beautiful is an organisation that is affiliated to Keep New Zealand Beautiful. We are a group of volunteers that are involved with litter abatement, beautification and civic pride. We encourage the involvement of schools and service groups.

Our group is involved with Clean Up New Zealand Week, the Best Street Competition and the beautification of various sites around Alexandra and Clyde such as the hanging baskets in the Golden Block and the cherry tree avenue in Clyde. 

Major projects have included the development of Kamaka Walkway, beautification of the Rail Trail, especially near the old Alexandra Railway Station, and facilitation of the restoration of the Look Out viewing platform, each of which has been acknowledged with awards.
