A new street washing vehicle is coming to the borough – and the council is tasking residents with naming it.

A social media campaign has begun on Facebook and Twitter, with the best eight suggestions set to head into a knockout vote. Quarter-finals and semi-finals will follow before the winner is selected in a final vote.

“We’re hoping to harness people’s sense of fun and creativity to come up with a really good name for the vehicle, which is going to help give our town centres a more thorough and regular clean than has been possible up to now,” said Councillor Peter Craske, cabinet member for community safety, environment and leisure.

“This will help us maintain the look and feel of the better quality materials that we have used in several of our town centre improvement schemes in recent years. I’m really looking forward to seeing people’s suggestions and I hope that – like us – people will keep it clean!”

The deadline for submissions is midday on Monday, December 11, and the knockout vote will begin the following day.

The new street washer has been funded from the £1.7million of extra investment Bexley is making to improve the borough’s local places, communities and infrastructure.

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.
