Padman-Mates park received some enthusiastic TLC on Clean Up Australia Day when secondary students and adult Guides converged on the park.
Twenty three volunteers, from just 3 years of age and upwards, collected 7 bags of recycling and 6 of general rubbish.
Much of the rubbish was found on Padman Drive roadside, with a pile of garden waste found in the park itself.
The volunteers consisted of the Murray Olave peer group of adult girl guides and a cohort of Year 12 prefects from Albury High School. Ranger Tim Alexander, who has been working on the Padman-Mates Park restoration for many years, was very impressed with both the turnout and the thorough job done.
Thanks to all for your efforts on this Clean Up Australia Day!
