Organisations working together to clean up roads
A PARTNERSHIP between Lions and Freemasonry in Gayndah has seen members out and about cleaning up town roads.
Master of Gayndah Lodge Bill Turner said the Adopt-A-Road project was supported by Keep Australia Beautiful Council of Queensland who supply the equipment.
"Assistance also comes from the North Burnett Regional Council and Queensland Main Roads,” he said.
"The Lions Club reports back to KABC the amount of rubbish collected.”
Mr Turner said the project is a great opportunity to improve the appearance and safety of A3 coming into Gayndah.
"It is also enhancing the town's natural beauty for the enjoyment of residents and visitors alike,” he said.
The first clean-up was June 2006 and has been going on a quarterly basis since then.
He said anyone keen to be part of these clean-ups would be made welcome.
"Notices are always posted on the Lions notice board near the dentist when a clean up is happening.
"Clean-up equipment is supplied so participants just need to wear a hat, have good shoes and sunscreen.”
