Never too young for Clean Up Australia

March 11, 2016

Two adorable little boys put on their hats and grabbed some gloves and a rake and went to work in the Bingara cemetery on Sunday March 6, Clean Up Australia Day.

Cleanup Australia Day 2016

Judi Peterson and the two little sweethearts.

They worked alongside Mum and Nan and the Bingara Lions Club to clean up all the glass and rubbish in the old section of the cemetery.

A great way to start the little ones off in caring for their community.  Good work boys!

With a group of residents and Lions members 18 bins of rubbish were taken to the tip. This is just one section of a big area that needs work.V Broken jars and bottles were retrieved from the grounds and many pieces of wire from artificial flowers.

Most of the rubbish is grass and weeds but as the council had poisoned them they were easier to chip out and remove.V Starting at 7am and working till 12 noon Lions and workers enjoyed a great barbecue lunch at All Nations Hill.V Russell Reading and Noelene Cronin were very appreciative of the work done and will be grateful for any ongoing work Lions and members of the community can devote to cleaning up the cemetery and keeping it clean. VRussell would like to see the old sites restored and markers replaced where they have been removed or destroyed over the years. This will be an ongoing project for Bingara Lions Club and anyone wishing to help can contact Lions or Russell for information.
