Mayor Peter Rush supports local clean up

Date published: 25 August 2013

Members of the World Mission Society Church of God have worked with local councillors to clean up areas surrounding South Street, Rochdale.

The group met on Wednesday 21 August to clean rubbish from the area and many local residents came out of their homes to help. Mayor Peter Rush also attended the clean up to support the volunteers.

Members of the Church have cleaned up through the whole of Greater Manchester and have cleaned areas such as Rochdale, Trafford, Salford, Bolton, Bury, Oldham, Tameside, Stockport, Wigan and Prestwich. The group plan to go everywhere that they can make a change.

The clean up campaign hopes to inform people of the seriousness of environmental issues.
