Picking up to help keep Pendle tidy

Community groups, students and keen volunteers sprang into action at the weekend to make Pendle a nicer place to live.

Hundreds of volunteers put in thousands of man hours and collected tons of rubbish as Pendle responded to the Great British Spring Clean call.

Run every year by Tidy Britain, the Great British Spring Clean weekend aims to get 500,000 volunteers out on to the streets and into the countryside to collect sacks full of rubbish.

Backed by Pendle Council, the local event attracted In Bloom groups, Neighbourhood Action Groups, uniformed groups and students who all made sure their own corner of Pendle was spotless by the end of the weekend.
