Litter-picking is hailed a success
A total of 25 bags of rubbish were collected, along with two traffic cones, at a flash mob litter-pick.
It was held by Newark Green Party and volunteers off Sleaford Road, in a woodland area between Lindum Mews and Beacon Hill Road.
It was the first flash-mob litter-pick run by the party, alongside its regular clean-ups.
Organiser Mr Jay Henderson said: “As Green Party members, litter-picking is a natural response to an environmental issue we can tackle directly.
“The answer to our call for action was phenomenal.
“Most of our volunteers were not party members, but simply people who wanted to see a cleaner community.
“The results have been better than we could have hoped for.
“I am continually being told about the visible difference we, and other groups, have made.”
Mr Henderson said other groups and individuals had been inspired by the party’s regular litter-picking to clean up rubbish.
“We hope by cleaning up the area, it will encourage others to not litter and to take pride in where they live,” he said.
