Subway Cleaning - 22nd February, 11am

As our unofficial contribution to the Great British Spring Clean we will be attack the subway with sponges and buckets on Saturday 22nd February at 11am.


Many hands make light work, and we can usually clean the subway in less than 50 minutes with a few people with sponges and your favourite household cleaning products. Please come along and lend a hand and be amazed at how quickly the subway can be transformed from dirty to sparkling!
