Cadets don gloves to clean up

PCYC Childers emergency service cadets showed their community spirit when they got their hands dirty to participate in this year's national Clean Up Australia Day.

Cadets donned gloves and were at the Skate Bowl Park and Millennium Park on Sunday to clean up the town.

Coordinator Rhy Baker said the group was "pleasantly surprised" that there wasn't a great deal of rubbish to pick up in those areas besides cigarette butts.

Supported by the PCYC, the emergency service cadets is a volunteer program for 12- to 17-year-olds who meet every Wednesday after school.

Cadets learn important skills from urban and rural fire services, ambulance and police officers and the SES, as well as participate in community voluntary work to make the town a better place.

If you or your child would like to get involved with the cadets program, contact Rhy Baker on 0419 263 753.
