Volunteers at last year’s litter pick with some of the rubbish collected.

Supporters of Harding’s Pits are organising a litter pick next Saturday, March 23 as part of the Great British Spring Clean.

Volunteers are needed to clear rubbish from Harding’s Way in King’s Lynn and  Harding’s Pits areas.

Anyone interested in taking part should meet at the main gate at Harding’s Way for 10am. 

Equipment will be provided but people have been asked to bring their own gloves. The litter pick is expected to  last for about three hours.

Last year’s clean-up saw more than 30 bags filled with rubbish, while cans and bottles were recycled.

The Harding’s Pits Community Association manages the seven acres of semi-rural  public open space between the River Great Ouse and Harding’s Way.

Chairman Rob Archer said: “Last year we had a good turnout for this event and filled more than 30 bags of rubbish – even though we regularly do a litter pick every week.

“This is a great opportunity to come along and meet our regular team of volunteers. 

“We meet once a month from March to November and undertake a range of conservation management tasks. Everyone has a laugh and we feed you too.”

The spruce-up is part of the Keep Britain Tidy campaign.
