clean up

Japan fans impress by cleaning up stadium

Japanese fans certainly had reason to go wild on Tuesday night. Their side won their opening game, beating Colombia 2-1, and securing the team's first victory against a South American side.

But after the team swept Colombia off the pitch, Japanese fans also did their share of sweeping: meticulously cleaning up their rows and seats in the stadium.

Equipped with large rubbish bags they brought along, the fans marched through the rows picking up rubbish, to leave the place just as neat as they had found it.

Gordons police tackle dirty streets

Leading the charge, was OIC Beat, Charles Pokom who explained that the initiative was to ensure that the police create awareness about keeping the streets clean not just in terms of law and order but also in appearance.

Pokom says that usually the community in the nation’s capital have a bad impression of the Gordons bus stop and surrounding shop areas, he says this will now be a thing of the past.

This initiative is a station concept that the Gordons Beat came up with to help clear up previous mis-conceptions as well as set the new more positive tone for the area.
