Volunteers clean up on national day

IPSWICH and Somerset residents turned out in force for Clean Up Australia Day activities held across the region on Sunday.

The local volunteers were among more than half a million that removed rubbish from 6000 sites across the country.

At Leslie Park, Goodna, volunteers spent the morning doing their bit for the environment.

In Somerset, volunteers patrolled Twin Bridges, Savages Crossing, Biarra and Mount Kilcoy State School.

Almost 100 bags of rubbish were removed from the registered cleanup sites in the Somerset Region.
