    A MILLION thanks to Clean up the World volunteers:

    The ESG, as organisers of the CUTW Gibraltar Campaign, wishes to thank each and every one who gave time and effort, to see that this great community campaign not only helps clean up Gibraltar but also makes positive and lasting changes in our environment. In spite of the many long term problems exposed by this campaign it’s also important to recognise how widely it is supported by many in our community who all wish to see these issues put right!! Well done to all- you should feel proud about your actions.
