A group of Gainsborough residents of the Park Springs area braved wind and rain to take part in a litter pick organised by social housing provider Acis Group.

Items removed from the area included mattresses, settees, carpets, toys and lots of pieces of wood.

Heather MacPherson, Neighbourhood Warden at Acis Group, said: “To have 11 people volunteering their time, even though the weather was terrible, was great.

“One of the volunteers works 70 hours a week and he gave up his time on his only day off.

“It’s great to see how many people take pride in their local area, particularly children.

“I even had children approach me asking to participate in another one over the school holidays.

“Thank you to all involved, including Continental Landscapes who were a tremendous help.”
