Pearse McCrory Litter Warden for the Inishowen Municipal District is encouraging people to come along and join in the clean up saying “it is a great community event and it’s a great way of getting to know people in your area.  Last weekend we had the Inishowen Community Clean up and it was great to see so many people out and about lending a helping hand.  It really makes such a difference to have an extra pair of hands doing this type of work and you never know you might even enjoy it.”
