Six groups of volunteers from across Hatfield took part in a litter pick last Saturday.

Clean up Hatfield’s Marian Hurle said “Going forward, I would ask everyone in the town to check the area near their house and keep it free of litter.

“Once one person takes the initiative, neighbours will often do the same and the whole area starts to look better”.

St Luke’s church organised a great clean up around their area and put all the rubbish collected into an Asda trolley (one of many abandoned around the town).

Sadly only one school could take part, Bishops Hatfield Girls who went out and sorted Woods Avenue.

Clean Up Hatfield has been running for five years now, and was founded by volunteers Marian Hurle and Cathy Roe, with backing from the Love Welwyn Hatfield project and Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council who provide equipment.

The rest of the big clean up of the town have since been cancelled.
