On Saturday, April 21, 2018 a much needed facelift was given to a main corridor that leads into Yeadon. Volunteers from both Yeadon and Philadelphia collaborated and cleaned up the area of Church Lane at Allen Drive to 70th and Cobbs Creek. This particular area has been an eyesore for a very long time so volunteers from both municipalities worked hand in hand in accomplishing this amazing goal. The area has been eradicated of tons of trash. A big thank you to ALL of the individuals who made it happen. This was not done by one person alone but by everyone collectively. The results speak volumes. Great job to all!
Congratulations to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners and all the runner ups for participating in Chief Paparo’s Kids Police Patch design contest!

Comcast Cares volunteers will be assisting Yeadon on Saturday,April 21st from 8 am to 12 pm to help clean up a major gateway that leads into the Borough (Church Lane at Allen Drive to 70th & Cobbs Creek Parkway).
Every year Comcast chooses an entity or municipality to help clean, plant trees and/or bring a needed facelift to communities by contributing to the environment and taking an active leadership role in being a responsible community partner.
Last year Comcast chose Yeadon and in a joint effort with dozens of volunteers and our Public Works Department cleaned up West Cobbs Creek Parkway from Chester Avenue to St. Louis Church. This year Comcast has chosen us again and will be assisting with cleaning our major gateway area. Philadelphia also will be collaborating and cleaning up their portion of 70th Street adjacent to ours at the same time.
We are in need of more volunteers so if you are interested in joining us then please contact Mr. Winston Reid at 610-931-3408. The staging area will be at Church Lane and Allen Drive where we will meet and register. Our Public Works Department will be on-site as well. Gloves, supplies and all needed materials will be provided. Portable lavatories will be on site. The area will be secured so that we can safely work. Please dress comfortably and fitting for this clean-up effort.

The Borough Council is happy to introduce our new Junior Councilor – Maaya El. Maaya is an 11th grader at Penn Wood High School and was nominated by her School Counselor and highly recommended by the school Principal. Maaya is described as a brilliant student with strong leadership skills. We look forward to working with Maaya and exploring all the ideas and suggestions she puts forth.
The Junior Council Person program provides youth in our community an opportunity to get engaged in borough government and develop leadership skills. It allows borough officials to serve as mentors to students who will be future leaders in our community. It also will provide Yeadon Council a perspective that is seldom seen in government – and that is the ideas and thoughts of our youth in our community. There is one more position open and available for any Yeadon high School student that may be interested. Please click here to apply.
