Make Southend Sparkle is about taking pride and positive action to improve your local area. Volunteer your time to make positive changes where you live.


Take pride in where you live and help to ‘Make Southend Sparkle’.

We live in a beautiful coastal town from the popular tourist area of Leigh-on-Sea to the wildlife rich Gunners Park in Shoeburyness. With stunning views across the estuary, numerous parks and public spaces and the glittering lights of the seafront, there is always something to interest and enthral.

Help make Southend the place to be by improving your local area. Whether it is by simply tidying your front garden, working with your neighbours to tidy up the communal alleyway behind your house or volunteering your time in some of the great local initiatives, you can help to make a real difference.

We want to hear your success stories. Maybe you and your neighbours have litter-picked your street; perhaps you have adopted an area near your home and are helping keeping it well maintained or maybe you help a friend or neighbour look after their front garden. Take before and after shots and post your stories here.

We want proactive and dedicated volunteers who are keen to take action and improve the place they live. If you have ideas of activities and want help getting your idea off the ground, or simply want to express your interest, you can email

We can help with advice, support and in some instances we will be able to provide the equipment you need.

If you need to make a complaint about a problem in your local area you can contact Southend-on-Sea Borough Council in a number of ways:
