The event, which was organised by Roots Norfolk, took place on Friday, February 23 and involved families with children at Mousehold Infant and Nursery School and George White Junior School.

Jess King said: “Everyone braved the cold - community activism at work - lots of people and a little time makes a big difference.

“We had over 20 families come along and they collected an awful lot of litter - the children worked really hard with their litter pickers.”

Roots Norfolk is working with the local schools on a zero-waste campaign to try and reduce plastic pollution.
