An annual scheme has launched which encourages residents to clean up their communities through a series of litter picks.

Each group taking part in the ‘Love East Suffolk’ campaign, which runs until May 31, will receive £20 for their nominated charity.

Organised by Suffolk Coastal and Waveney Norse, groups will also be entered into a £200 grand prize draw.

Graham Catchpole, WDC’s cabinet member for operational partnerships said: “Organising a litter pick in your town or village is a simple but effective way to dramatically improve your local area; it also makes a real difference to wildlife and the environment.

Waveney Norse provides groups with litter-picking equipment including sacks and disposable gloves, as well as removing any collected litter.

To be eligible for the scheme all registered groups must submit a photo of their event and permit use of the photo for publicity purposes.
