Community called on to help tidy up their village
Villagers in Peasedown St John are being called on to help with a community clean-up on Sunday.
Members of Peasedown 1st, which was set up in 2010 to bring the community together, have decided to give the largest housing estate in the village an early spring clean.
The day-long initiative will focus on the Frederick Avenue and Albert Avenue area.
Peasedown 1st is keen to get more people involved with hands-on action within their community.

The group's secretary Becci McCafferty said they were responding to local concern.
Mrs McCafferty said: "Peasedown 1st believes very strongly in community action and working with residents to help them make a difference in their village.
"Over the last few weeks, residents in Frederick and Albert avenues have been in touch with us about the litter in their streets and asked if there was anything we could do to help."
Leader of Peasedown 1st, councillor David Walker added that he hoped the event would demonstrate the strength of community feeling in the village.
Mr Walker said: "We've organised a number of this type of events over the years, they are always well attended and show us just how much people care about Peasedown.
"I do hope that this clean-up will be the first of many this year."
It will start at 11am outside 46 Frederick Avenue. People should bring gloves and any protective clothing they may want to wear. Peasedown 1st will provide the litter pickers and rubbish sacks.
