Richard Nash of Morpeth Lions, a very keen supporter of Morpeth Litter Group, with items of rubbish collected.

The litter picked up around the roads and lanes in the Bothal Sawmill area during the two-hour slot included 15 bags, four tyres, plenty of car bits, remains of DIY, a fireguard and a very old gas container.

Morpeth Litter Group is also pleased to report that a group of avid litter pickers from St Robert's First Sch-ool in Oldgate are helping the clean-up effort and they have been presented with 15 new 60cm litter pickers, funded by a donation from the Greater Morpeth Development Trust.

The school team will pick up litter in Carlisle Park once a week every Friday.
