This weekend’s Clean Up the World campaign garnered support from a number of local schools, clubs, associations and Government ministers, including Environment Minister Dr. John Cortes. Art in Movement led the walkers with rhythmic drumming which attracted much attention. Many school children had created signs and banners made from recycled materials especially for the Parade and bright, important messages about protecting the environment were on display and shouted out by the pupils. Once at the Square and after a few words were spoken by organisers and the Minister for the Environment the crowd was entertained by fabulous dance displays by Art in Movement and Danza Academy.
