“This Sunday is a chance for people who are constantly frustrated by the amount of littering in the community to get out there and do something about it,” Cundletown’s Megan Goodsell said of her local Clean Up Australia Day campaign.
Megan is one of hundreds around the country who are determined to step up and make a difference in the community and have registered a site to take action on Sunday (March 4).
“I will be waiting by the fig tree at the intersection of River Street and the L C Jordan Bridge that crosses over to Dumaresq Island at 9am, armed with bags, gloves and registration forms,” Megan said.
“Anyone in the community who wants to join me is most welcome. You can go on the website and see all the places people have registered to clean up, there might be more around the area, but if you are looking for something in Cundletown, that’s where we will be.”
A regular campaigner for Clean Up Australia Day, Megan believes the initiative provides a chance for everyone to stop whinging about the rubbish, and get out there and do something about it.
“I have registered a site this year because this is a cause I really believe in,” she said.
“I have taken part in this day for years now, and I thought if I registered the local spot, hopefully others will want to help out as well.
“You can just turn up on the day, we will meet up in the morning and make a plan of action and then make a difference.
“Last year we picked up so much rubbish around the Cundletown area, I’m sure there will be plenty more this year, so we want all the help we can get.”
