Volunteers help clear litter from Peasedown St John streets
High-vis jackets and bin bags were out in force on Saturday when the villagers of Peasedown St John came together to clean up their community.
Residents, community activists and parish councillors all got their hands dirty and filled ten bags of rubbish from Braysdown Lane and Bath Road.
The initiative, organised by Bath and North East Somerset councillors Nathan Hartley and Sarah Bevan was hailed a great success.
Ms Bevan said: "Community clean-ups are always useful, not only for giving the neighbourhood a spring clean, but also for bringing people together."
Karen Walker, vice-chairwoman of the council, added: "Our community matters – the cleaner it looks the more pride people will feel about living here. Much of the litter is left when refuse collectors often miss items or don't always pick everything up which means rubbish is left behind."
