MORE than 20 bags of rubbish have been cleared from Kingswood town centre after the area received a timely spring clean.

Labour councillors from the area joined forces with the Friends of Kingswood Park to take part in the annual Big Spring Clean day.

This year the team of 12 – made up equally of councillors and local activists – managed to fill 22 bags of rubbish, remove glass bottles and glasses from shrubs and even cleared two sofa seats and a plastic garden chair.

The areas cleaned included Cecil Road car park and the central Halls Road and Regent Street areas.

Kingswood councillor and Labour group leader, Pat Rooney, said: “The Big Spring Clean is now a firm event in our diary every year. We are most grateful for the time and commitment of the Friends of Kingswood Park for doubling our team this year, and as a result we got a lot more cleared. 

"This spring clean forms part of a major project of us working together to improve Kingswood town centresteaming up with community groups such as the Friends of Kingswood Park."
