Our Union Street recruiting volunteer army for second street clean-up

Volunteers at the previous Union Street clean up last year

OUR Union Street is hunting for an army of volunteers to assist in clean-up of Union Street on March 17, at 10am.

The group will specifically focus on an area of central Union Street, from the Music Hall to Union Terrace Gardens, as well as cleaning and tidying of an empty unit at 164 Union Street in advance of “something amazing” happening, according to Derrick Thomson from the group.

The second street clean-up follows October’s tidying of the St Nicholas Kirk graveyard, which saw dozens of people of all ages turn out, supplied with brushes and bright purple jackets, to aid street’s resurgence by tidying up the area.

Brightening up the street is one of five action areas detailed in the latest Our Union Street whitepaper.

Along with channelling people power, the campaign has also launched one of the best incentive packages for new businesses available anywhere in the UK.

You can sign-up for the clean-up on March 17 here.
