Young people from a collection of local churches took to the streets of Waringstown last week to make a difference in the village.

Given the recent negative publicity Waringstown has received due to antisocial behaviour, the young people wanted to show that those intent on bringing down the name of the village are in the minority.

The team of willing volunteers took part in a tidy up of the village including completing practical jobs for residents as well as giving the streets a general clean.

One of the youth leaders, Neil Harrison of Waringstown Presbyterian Church, commented: “All of this is being spearheaded by local young people.

“In light of what was reported last week this is a positive news story of young people doing something positive in the village.

“I have had countless phonecalls and conversations from residents expressing their appreciation for what the gLo team have done to their garden, etc.”

The ever-popular gLo week finished with a fun day, barbecue and concert led by gLo members on
Friday night.
