After a particularly stormy start to the year the bronze memorial was covered in more corrosiveĀ seagull mess and moss than usual.

Romany suggested a spring clean for the iconic memorial was in order, community activist Chris Cooke made a few telephone calls to his contacts at the council and within 72 hours, Damien Marmura, Cityclean’s area operations manager had organised a complete makeover for the memorial. Better still Cityclean have promosied Chris to give ‘Tay’ a makeover 3 or 4 times a year.

Chris Cooke, said: Ā “A huge thank you to the Cityclean team for the quick response to my cleaning request. Ā Romany contacted me at the beginning of the week, confirmation by the team was given to me on the same day and the work took place on the Friday. Ā I am very impressed.

“Credit goes to Damien Marmura the area operations manager at Cityclean for organising it and to the three members of his team for carrying out this much needed “spring clean”.
“In addition, Cityclean have confirmed that the statue will be cleaned regularly every 3 or 4 months in the future, so this is excellent news for the community.”
