Commenting on the Big Spring Clean the Chairman of Fermanagh and Omagh District Council, Councillor Thomas O’Reilly encouraged residents of the district to get involved with the tidy-up initiative. “The Big Spring Clean is a very successful annual event when individuals and groups can demonstrate pride in their environment and locality by giving it a spruce up or picking up letter in their own surroundings. We have a beautiful and scenic district which attracts visitors from all over the world and we want to show it off to best advantage. The Council works hard all year round to keep it clean and tidy and litter-free, so I would encourage as many people as possible to take part in a local litter-pick or clean up”, he added.
