Staff from a fast food chain in south east Northumberland have been helping to clean up their area.

Colleagues from McDonalds stores in Ashington , Blyth and moor Farm, have been cleaning up the streets of Ashington through the ‘Love where you live’ initiative.

Targeting one of the main shopping streets at Station Road, the team carried out litter-picking, weed removal and cleaned street furniture – providing an enhanced tidy up for the area.

Grant Simmonds, shift manager at Moor Farm McDonalds arranged the clean up event.

“At McDonald’s we recognise our responsibility to protect and preserve the environment for generations to come,” he said.

“The company is committed to tackling the issue of litter and is proud to be one of the sponsors of Keep Britain Tidy’s anti-littering campaign, Love Where You Live.”

“Our staff enjoy events like this where they can get out and about and make a difference in the local community, and I would like to thank the council very much for helping to make this happen.”
