Dereham Community Litter Pickers

Anyone familiar with Mid Norfolk knows that our area is home to a much loved sense of spirit and community that binds us all together – which is why I always look to shine a light on, and support, any local projects and initiatives that look to nurture and enhance that spirit for the good of others, especially when the work they do delivers tangible benefits for their fellow citizens.

It was therefore great to be able to join the Dereham Community Litter Pickers team on Saturday – a key local group helping to keep Dereham clean and tidy.

Together, our group of 38 volunteers collected 27 bags (88.9kg) of rubbish.

Thank you to Hawthorn and Bee for sponsoring the group on Saturday – a wonderful example of a local business supporting a brilliant local community initiative.

For more details on Dereham Community Litter Pickers’ vitally important work, please visit their Facebook page here. (The next litter pick will take place on Saturday 24th February at 10am).

I look forward to getting out and joining the team again in the near future.
