LOVERS of Maryborough have combined to give central streets in the CBD a spruce up.

Some 40 to 50 people joined in to help on the morning from cooking breakfast and sponsorship to cleaning up.

The initiative led by the Marybrough Chamber of Commerce is designed to remove some of the day-by-day grime from the inner city and also build community spirit.

Those who took part in the day appreciated the overcast weather and many chose to wear fancy dress to add a sense of occasion.

There were about 10 wheelie bins commandeered and filled with rubbish gathered from Bazaar, Kent and Adelaide Sts, with Adelaide St requiring the most work.

According to those who participated yesterday, two types of pollution dominated.

One was bird droppings that most said had not been cleaned away in 12 months and high pressure hoses proved most effective in getting rid of that mess.

The other menace to inner city cleanliness proved to be the dropping of cigarette butts.
