A CARDIGAN cleaning company has once again taken to the town centre streets to give them a thorough wash down.

Marc Thomas, from Ultra Clean, has been out cleaning the pavements, getting rid of built up grime, dirt and pigeon droppings.

Only last month, he and work colleague Wayne Reed sanitised many of the public areas in the town with disinfectant spray, focusing on bus stops, benches and areas where there is multiple contact by the public.

And once again, Marc has insisted on carrying out the work for free as a way of helping the community during the current coronavirus crisis.

“There was quite a lot of pigeon mess along the High Street and with everything that is going on in the world at the moment, it is all about trying to make people feel a bit better and giving something back,” said Marc, who set up Ultra Clean 12 years ago.

“I am happy to do it and it feels like you are contributing something and you can’t buy that. The town council has offered to pay but we are just glad to do it for the benefit of the local community.”

Cardigan mayor Cllr Clive Davies said it was a great effort.

“The high street looks so much cleaner and it is a fantastic gesture. We cannot believe how generous Marc has been and want to say a huge thank you,” said Cllr Davies.

“You can clearly see where they have been working and It has made a huge difference to the appearance of the town.

“I would also like to thank John Morris the town handyman for the loan of the water bowser to allow this work to happen.

“We also hope to be planting out flowers but only when it is safe to do so, taking the necessary precautions.”
