Twenty groups, clubs and associations have each received £200 thanks to this year's South Norfolk Council's Big Litter Pick.

More than 100 litter picks took place involving hundreds of residents from across the district and thousands of bags of rubbish and recycling were collected.

Kay Mason Billig, cabinet member for environment and recycling, said: 'The Big Litter Pick continues to go from strength to strength. I would like to thank everyone who gave up their time to make a real difference in their community. I would also like to say congratulations to all of our winners.'

There were four £200 prizes up for grabs in each of South Norfolk's five neighbourhood areas and every group which took part was given a £20 voucher to be spent on their group, charity or local community.

Among the groups awarded a £200 prize were Diss's Taylor Road Residents' Association and Roydon Guides and Brownies.
