Maroondah Leader: Business let down at clean-up

By March 7, 2006No Comments

The Ringwood Transit City Community Coalition’s (RTCCC) efforts with Clean Up Australia Day were recognised by the Maroondah Leader:

THEY were few in numbers, but the Ringwood Transit City Community Coalition held up the fight in Maroondah for the Business Clean Up Australia Day.

Sandra Hardiman said she was disappointed more local traders did not attend.

Loughnan’s Hill councillor Alex Makin said it was satisfying to pitch in to help the community, and he hoped visitors would notice their efforts. “If you improve the local area and make it more attractive, then more business will be done there,” Cr Makin said.

The cleanliness of an area is vital to provide a safe and friendly atmosphere for shopping and commerce. I urge the business community to support efforts to improve the image of Ringwood by participating in events such as Clean Up Australia Day.
