VOLUNTEERS came together to ensure their community was kept tidy during a nation-wide campaign.

The Great British September Clean is a nation-wide campaign which ran from 11 to 27 September and volunteers from all around the country came out to lend their support.

In Wrexham the Rotary Passport hub and members of Wrexham Rotary club were joined by enthusiastic volunteers Sarah Atherton MP for Wrexham, Phil Wynn from Wrexham Town Council, Christine Griffiths from Offa Community Council, Adriana who is Community Champion at Morrison's Supermarket and Shane Hughes of the Keep Wales Tidy group.

Local Passport organiser Jane Wedley said she was 'overwhelmed by the response', adding that they worked on the public footpath from Watery Road to the Wrexham Maelor Hospital.

Between them they collected over 20 bags of rubbish in just two hours.

Jane said: "The newly formed Passport hubs have a number of initiatives that are currently being worked on, for example recipe food boxes locally and collecting no-longer needed laptop computers which will be fitted with specialist software for blind students and shipped to them in The Gambia.

"If you would like to join Rotary Passport or to volunteer to help with the current projects please contact Jane Wedley on 07749 793103."
