People are being encouraged to tidy up their communities as part of the Great British Spring Clean next month.

Broadland District Council is backing the campaign and will be teaming up with pupils at Rackheath Primary Schools to launch the event.

Armed with litter pickers and high-visibility jackets, pupils, councillors and staff will head to the woods adjacent to the school to collect any rubbish they find.

Throughout March, the council will be lending out its litter picking equipment and arranging collections of rubbish collected by schools and community groups as part of the campaign.

'We are delighted to be supporting The Great British Spring Clean and we encourage as many groups, schools individuals and organisations as possible to take part,' said John Fisher, Broadland District Council's portfolio holder for environmental excellence.

The event is being launched in the district on Wednesday, March 1.
