VOLUNTEERS will be helping to spruce up long shelters in Foreshore Road tomorrow to get them looking their best ahead of this month’s Armed Forces Day event.

A work party will be there between 10am and noon and they are being co-ordinated by Roger Burnett Scarborough Council’s Community Environment Officer.

He said he was delighted to see so many people turn out to help paint the shelters.

He added: “We are inviting anyone who is keen to help to turn up, all materials are being provided by the property section of Scarborough Council and all we ask is that people wear clothes and footwear suitable for painting and gardening.

“Scarborough people are rightly proud of their beautiful town and this is an opportunity to show how much you care.”

Residents may have noticed the start of the transformation last weekend where volunteers used almost four gallons of paint and cleared 20 bags of rubbish from St Nicholas Gardens.
