As a follow up to the spring clean in April, Newent Town Council recently organised an autumn litter pick.

Several town councillors and staff took time out on a Saturday to tackle litter and discarded rubbish around the town.

Councillor Mrs Ruth Wadley said: “It was a very productive and enjoyable morning, helped by the warm dry weather. It is a great chance for the community to get together, meeting friends and clearing up at the same time.

“Join us next time when perhaps we can target another area”.
