Green fingered staff from McDonald’s restaurant in Whitebirk helped spruce up an overgrown garden.
Six staff joined Councillor Mohammed Khan, leader of Blackburn with Darwen Council, and council officers to do some work on the enclosed garden on Higson Street.
The clean-up took place over two days and staff concentrated on cutting back shrubs as well as clearing nettles and roots from a large area at the side.
Once cleared, they scattered poppy seeds that will add some colour next year.
Councillor Khan said:
am very grateful to McDonald’s staff for offering up their time and helping to clean up this area. It is very kind of them and I hope other businesses take their lead and work with us to make Blackburn and Darwen a better place.
