Mike Dovey, who was part of the group, took to social media to share pictures of their work. He said that the initial state of the place was a "disgrace"

"It is amazing what can be done in 5 hours together when one's goals are the same"

The group last did a clean up on New Years Day in 2014. Facebook users congratulated the team for their good deed.
