Cleaning up the dirty closes

Are you sick of the sight and smell of the Montrose closes? They’re a bit of a disgrace, aren’t they?

A new group, Green Guerrillas, will be running events over the coming months aimed at making the closes a safer, cleaner place to be. The Green Guerrillas are currently looking for volunteers to help by lending an hour of your time to do something amazing for the town - it’s your community and you can make it better for everyone.

The clean-up starts on Saturday (May 17) at 12 noon with a targeted clean up of the worst offending closes. For more information visit
