BARNSLEY Central MP Dan Jarvis organised a ‘Big Spring Clean’ last month to tidy up parts of his constituency.

Dan was joined by a team of volunteers - made up of representatives from the council and the Church of the Nazarene - to tidy up both sides of Sheffield Road and the surrounding area.

He said: “Taking care of the environment is everyone’s responsibility.

“Events like this help keep our streets and green spaces clean and sends a powerful message that we value our community and are committed to tackling the scourge of littering.

“We collected lots of rubbish and have shown that, with a little elbow grease, positive change can happen in the local area.

“Moreover, the Big Spring Clean also served as a great opportunity to bring people together and chat about the other challenges facing our community.

“A big thank you to everyone who turned out to help.”
