The Big Clean Up, which began yesterday, is a week-long campaign in which residents are encouraged to litter pick and tidy their streets.

It’s part of the Love Your Neighbourhood campaign, which is designed to encourage civic pride.

The clean up is taking place in estates, parks and waterways around the borough, and will run until October 8.

Mayor John Biggs said: “It is great to see such positive community involvement. These weeks are positive steps that make sure our borough looks its best and they provide an outlet for the sense of civic pride shown by so many.

“While most people respect out streets, sadly there are a few whose actions quickly become a blight upon the neighbourhood. It is great to see that there are many people whose behaviour is a positive example to others.”
