Member for Maroochydore Fiona Simpson is calling on Sunshine Coast residents to take part in Clean Up Australia Day events planned for this weekend.
Volunteers across Queensland will be converging on parks, waterways, streets and other public areas on Sunday March 3 to lend a hand in the nation’s biggest clean-up day.
Ms Simpson will be joining with volunteers at the Maroochydore Tennis Club to clean up the area around Cotton Tree from 7-10am on Sunday.
“I’ll be arming myself with rubber gloves and a garbage bag and joining with local residents who want to make a difference to our local environment,” Ms Simpson said.
“Maroochydore High School is also organising a clean- up from 8.45-11am.”
Ms Simpson said that more volunteers are needed to roll up their sleeves and get involved.
