Litter pickers have been blitzing Hatfield thanks to a campaign organised by residents.

The second round of town-wide tidy ups has been taking place thanks to organisers Marian Hurle and Cathy Roe with support from Welwyn Hatfield Council and Herts County Council.

Marian said: “I’d like to thank all the leaders of the groups and all the local people who came out to help this time.

“All of the areas that were covered last time have less litter this time, but there is still far too much being dropped.

“Most of the rubbish is related to food and drink and a sizeable proportion along the main roads comes out of car windows. “There is a big education campaign needed alongside the litter picking.”

The University of Hertfordshire has also been doing some litter picks in various parts of the town.
