County Antrim Countryside Custodians - cleaning up country roads one blue bag at a time

Over the last weeks you might have noticed blue bags being left at the side of some country roads - they are evidence of the dedication and hard work of the volunteer teams from the County Antrim Countryside Custodians (CACC).

Walking up and down country roads, picking up litter and all sorts of rubbish left behind by the careless, the local volunteers are committed to helping maintain a beautiful and safe environment for humans and wildlife alike, across County Antrim. Founder of the CACC, Katherine McAdam wanted to let people know of the ongoing work being done and invite those who might be interested to get involved.

Katherine said:

“If you see people out and about clearing litter and leaving blue bags at the roadside, don't be alarmed! They are not fly tipping but are the County Antrim Countryside Custodians.

“They are doing a fabulous job of helping look after the environment and we are looking for others to join us.”

With over 560 members (and growing) Katherine would love to hear from anyone who would like to make a real difference in County Antrim.

Continuing, Katherine commented:

“If you are interested in getting some excercise or even just tidying up the area that you live in, then join up with us! We are keen to increase our membership in and around the Ballymena area.

“Our volunteers are doing wonderful work but need more people willing to give up a little bit of time when they can to get out in the fresh air and help make Ballymena a place that we can all be proud of.

“Working together works!”
