Helped by volunteers from the National Citizenship Service they swept, weeded and scrubbed.

The area along the front of the Ringway where Friargate crosses it was given a clean up.

The Peace Garden was swept and weeded, all the way along the front of the St George’s centre up to the toilet block approaching Lune Street.
