Carol Hopkins and Lloyd Harrison from the Clean Up WGC team planned six community litter picks at King George V playing fields, Moors Walk shopping area, Knella Road, Howlands, Stanborough and Nursery Hills.

Each litter pick lasted for about an hour each, and more than 60 bags of rubbish were collected. The youngest volunteer was just three years old and the oldest was over 70, with pupils also helping from local schools.

The group thanked Gemma Woods, Fiona Thompson and Barbara Fitzsimon for leading three of the picks.
Carol said: "It was such fantastic weather for litter picking and the volunteers all worked so hard to help improve our town by making it cleaner."

The next litter pick will be held at Stanborough Lakes and Haldens Park on Sunday, October 6.
