“If there are people out cleaning up the streets, others will see and hopefully then make sure everything goes in the bin. We’re putting pride back into the city.”

“If everyone cleaned their own area once or twice a week we’d manage to keep the litter down in Ely”

“I’d like to thank all of the volunteers, they were very cheerful demonstrated a great community spirit”
