Big Spring Clean Photos

Saturday 14th May was the date of the Big Spring Clean in Saintfield.  This is an annual activity coordinated by Keep Northern Ireland Beautiful and organised in Saintfield by Saintfield Development Association [SDA].  Pupils and teachers from Academy Primary School joined members of the public and SDA for a morning of picking and bagging the rubbish dropped and thrown away by thoughtless individuals.  Thanks go to 2nd Saintfield Presbyterian Church for the use of their hall and for providing welcome refreshments.
Keep Saintfield beautiful!  Find a bin or take your litter home.
