Litter pickers help to clean up Ringsfield
ARMED with pickers, plastic bags and a sense of community spirit, a group joined together this morning to help clean their village.
The group of 10 united at 10am at Ringsfield village hall, before pounding the streets of the village picking up rubbish along their way.
Crisp bags, drinks bottles and a collection of fast food remains were all among the items found.
The group do the litter pick twice a year to make the village roads, paths and hedges a cleaner place for everyone.
Organiser Philip Johnson, chairman of Ringsfield and Weston Parish Council, said: 'It is really good to get people together on a Saturday morning, it brings the community closer together.'

In the past the group had found a wide variety of items on the roadside including tyres and a kitchen sink.
'It is very sad that people don't take their rubbish home and just chuck it out,' he said.
