Staff from local McDonald’s have taken part in a clean-up of parts of Rothwell.

The group, from Kettering and Rothwell restaurants, picked up litter along the A14, the area around the Mounts, the Market Square and the community centre.

They were joined by the deputy mayor of Kettering borough, Cllr June Derbyshire.

Ellis Rayson, second assistant at Rothwell McDonald’s, said: “I would like thank the council who helped us with the event and of course all the staff from McDonald’s who willingly volunteered for the “Love Where You Live” campaign which is proving to be very successful within the local communities. Everyone did a great job on the day and I’m delighted Councillor June Derbyshire was able to help us with the event.

Paul Sawford, from Kettering council, added: “The benefits of working together on litter picks, clean ups can be seen by all residents, businesses thus enhancing the appearance of the local areas.”
