Ballymena Borough Council is actively participating in the Big Spring Clean 2015 – the annual initiative supported by Keep Northern Ireland Beautiful.
This Saturday staff from the Council’s Environmental Services team are teaming up with 1st Broughshane Cub Scouts/Leaders, and parents and staff from McDonalds to carry out a clean-up within the Ecos Park.
The clean- up will commence from KFC entrance to Ecos Park.
