The Deniliquin Rotary Club and local volunteers lent their time to clean up the town’s main streets on Sunday afternoon.
A team of about 18 cleaned up Cressy and Napier Sts, including members of the Rotary Club and some willing volunteers like Mary Roberts, Judy Bond, Ron Friend, Mayor Lindsay Renwick and his wife Jan.
Rotary member Ian McAtamney said ‘‘a chorus of blowers shifted dust and leaves, and spider brooms displaced spiders and their webs that had been up on awnings and walls for a long time’’.
‘‘Pigeon poo has been scraped off ready for some street washing that should see the Deniliquin shopping centre looking good for Easter,’’ Mr McAtamney said.
‘‘The Deniliquin Rotary Club has been happy to do this, not only to help present the town as well as possible at Easter, but in recognition of the support that a number of businesses have given to projects over time.’’
Mr McAtamney said Rotary has also ‘‘done some mowing and tidying up down Hardinge St’’.
‘‘The [former] KFC corner proves to be a challenge and one can only hope that such a large corporation could be a bit more civic minded and at least have the site maintained,’’ he said.
Rotary Club member Tim Nolan said the clean-up idea was suggested to ensure Deniliquin was looking its best over the upcoming holiday periods.
‘‘We thought it was a good idea to do a clean up before Easter and Anzac Day comes around,’’ Mr Nolan said.
