Operation Civic Pride will also be rolled out to the King's Lynn area on September 26 and 27.

A vehicle amnesty will return to Thetford next month, with authorities offering to remove scrap vehicles for free, providing that owners bring the keys, vehicle registration document, and proof of identity to the police station, fire station, town council, Peddars Way, or Breckland Council offices by October 8.

Community groups are also being asked to carry out litter picks in their areas on October 7. Call Tierney Woods, litter education officer at Breckland Council, on 01362 656878.
