Southport Visiter - - Visiter Life -

SOUTH­PORT’S cel­e­brated Rub­bish Friends vol­un­teer group has been busy en­sur­ing that the lat­est of the town’s pres­ti­gious sport­ing events has a lit­ter free venue.

The team was out in force and 19 vol­un­teers filled 37 bags of lit­ter from West Lan­cashire Yacht Club’s sur­round­ings in prepa­ra­tion for the 24-hour race to be staged there this week­end.

Rub­bish Friends co­founder Cllr Pat Keith said: “Our or­gan­i­sa­tion has been run­ning for six years and I am con­stantly thrilled with the ded­i­ca­tion and the turnout of the won­der­ful vol­un­teers.

“They turn out in all weath­ers to help keep South­port sparkling and we should all ap­pre­ci­ate their great ef­forts.”

One vol­un­teer Leo Evans said: “Our town is for­tu­nate to host a se­ries of pres­ti­gious sport­ing events in­clud­ing County Cricket, the Yacht Race and, of course, The Open golf at Royal Birk­dale and it is es­sen­tial that we present a lit­ter-free im­age for visi­tors and res­i­dents.”
