Retirement of Alberto, Thackeray Street’s Street Cleaner

After twelve years, well known street cleaner, Alberto, retires from his duties of cleaning around Young Street, Kensington Square and Thackeray St.   To mark this occasion members of the Kensington Court Residents Association (‘KCRA’) together with the Mayor of Kensington and Chelsea, Councillor James Husband presented Alberto with a cheque from the KCRA, and a beautiful framed photograph (taken by local resident, Sally Cooper and framed by Gordon of Gallery 19).   The event, organised by members of the KCRA, was to wish Alberto a fulfilling retirement and to thank him for his street cleaning, (particularly in Thackeray St.) over this long period of time.   Although Alberto will miss the residents and business owners with whom he has become great friends, he feels the time has come to retire and spend more time with his beloved Grand-daughter, and to tend to his roof garden in Fulham.  However, the first thing he will be doing is going to Spain for a couple of months for a well deserved rest!  He will be missed and we all wish Alberto a wonderful and happy retirement.
