Residents joined Seaton Valley councillors and staff for a community litter pick in New Hartley.

The group collected rubbish from around the Memorial Park, Bristol Street and St Michael’s Avenue down to the railway crossing.

Hartley ward councillor Susan Dungworth said: “I would like to thank everyone who turned up to help, especially the young volunteers. Everyone had a fun time helping to keep the village tidy and we even managed to find the first snowbells of the year.

“The next litter pick is on Saturday, February 22 in Holywell Village, starting at Dale Top at 9.30am. Why not come along and join us?”
