Mar­jal clean-up planned

Costa Blanca News (North Edition) - - NEWS -

A RIVER in the Pego-Oliva Mar­jal marshes (on the bor­der be­tween Va­len­cia and Ali­cante prov­inces) is due for a spring clean, and vol­un­teers are needed for the de­clut­ter­ing ex­er­cise.

Specialist sub-aquatic en­gi­neer­ing firm Kraken will be work­ing all to­mor­row morn­ing (Satur­day May 24) scoop­ing out rubbish from the Bul­lent, where Pego's crazy fancy-dress raft race is held a week be­fore the start of Lent.

Helped by a float­ing plat­form to tackle hard-to-reach ar­eas, the team is one of many across the con­ti­nent tak­ing part in the 'Let's Clean Up Europe' project, where pro­fes­sion­als and mem­bers of the pub­lic will tidy up parks, gar­dens, lakes, roads, ponds and rivers through­out the month of May.

'Let's Clean Up Europe' is aimed at cre­at­ing aware­ness and get­ting the pub­lic to do their bit to help their planet.

Any­one who wants to join in should head to the river Bul­lent, which starts near the Oliva-Pego road, be­tween 08.00 hrs and 14.00 hrs.
