MSP joins spring clean

Paisley Daily Express - - Get Set For First Round Of Brilliant Beer Festival -

Derek Mackay MSP is en­cour­ag­ing peo­ple to get in­volved in Ren­frew­shire’s Big Spring Clean this week­end.

The events are be­ing hosted as part of Ren­frew­shire Coun­cil’s Team Up to Clean Up cam­paign and will take place on Fri­day, Satur­day and Sun­day across the district.

Since the cam­paign was launched last Novem­ber, more than 50 com­mu­nity clean ups have taken place with the SNP MSP pitch­ing in and tak­ing part.

The Ren­frew­shire North and West MSP will be out and about this week­end help­ing with the clean ups in his con­stituency and is en­cour­ag­ing oth­ers to get in­volved if they can.

He said: “I’ve seen how much of a dif­fer­ence these com­mu­nity clean ups can make. It is in­cred­i­ble how much rub­bish and lit­tler can be col­lected in less than an hour, help­ing to clean up the lo­cal area and keep it tidy.

“I will be out again this week­end help­ing clean ups in my con­stituency, and I would en­cour­age any­one who wants to get in­volved in their own com­mu­nity to come along.”
