Abandoned Trolleys

Trolley Quest

Members of the ERA committee went on a quest to rescue abandoned supermarket trolleys from around the Eddington estate. In line with COVID restrictions, six members split into three pairs and collected 27 trolleys over a one hour search.

The ERA is aware some residents are concerned about abandoned trolleys. One resident posted on Facebook, "When we walk around Eddington we see trolleys everywhere and sometimes wonder if there are any left at their rightful place."

Eddington topic of A-level and GCSE research projects

The sustainable nature of the Eddington development does not only spark interest amongst professional bodies (see the many awards Eddington has won so far for architecture, etc.) but also amongst schools and pupils.
