New litter picks have been announced by Clean Up Hatfield for March.

Campaign organisers, Marian Hurle and Cathy Roe, are busy allocating streets, raising awareness and forming teams to tackle the towns rubbish problem.

Local charity Welwyn Hatfield Community and Voluntary Service (WHCVS) volunteer Maria Prisciandaro, who will be joining the campaign, said: "I enjoy the fresh air and friendships while walking.

"It is rewarding to make it nicer for everyone and I hope to inspire others to take care of their streets too.

Hatfield Clean Up runs twice a year and, in addition, WHCVS have regular groups that go out and brighten community spaces throughout the year with Affinity Water, Sustrans, Welwyn Hatfield Day Services, Hatfield Library, amongst other businesses and groups.

The Hatfield campaign week starts on Saturday, March 14 and runs to Saturday, March 21.
