Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - NEWS -

JA­SON White set out with one goal on Clean Up Aus­tralia Day – to beau­tify Bid­will.

The Chi­fley Col­lege deputy prin­ci­pal teamed up with Bid­will Unit­ing Church and, armed with gloves and bags, cleaned up the sub­urb bit by bit.

The group picked up more than 25 bags of rub­bish, in­clud­ing 300 drink bot­tles and even a shop­ping trol­ley that had been con­verted into a go-kart.

Mr White said it was great to see so many peo­ple tak­ing pride in the com­mu­nity.

“I was pleas­antly sur­prised this year; the amount of rub­bish had been far worse in pre­vi­ous years,” he said.

“There are so many amaz­ing things hap­pen­ing here, peo­ple tend to fo­cus on the bad things but that is s not the real Bid­will.”
