Editor's Viewpoint: Teens show way

It is easy to think that individuals cannot make a real difference to a community but that is to ignore the evidence. Look at the transformation wrought in the village of Millisle during one of the Belfast Telegraph-inspired Big Spring Cleans.

And what is even more gratifying is that the bulk of the work was done by that most maligned of age groups, teenagers. They got out there in the village and on the beach and binned all the rubbish they could find to produce a scenic vista that any neighbourhood would be proud of.

So don't just sit there and moan about the state of your locality -get organised and get out, you really can make a difference.
