Those involved in the organisation of the event included local football club Ballynahinch Olympic, Down Community Church members, and local Sinn Féin representatives including Councillor Paul Gribben and Chris Hazzard MLA.

Mr Hazzard said:  “It was great to see so many local people come out and give a hand in the clean-up. The Lough Park area of Ballynahinch is a popular area for children and young people to play so it’s fantastic that local people helped clean it up as we approach the summer months.”

Local Sinn Féin Councillor Paul Gribben applauded the sense of community spirit in Ballynahinch and said: “I was delighted to be invited into Ballynahinch to participate in this event. I am a great believer in local people getting involved in local projects, so it’s great to see young people from Ballynahinch playing a vital part in keeping the area clean and tidy.”
