A few heads were turned in Kessingland as a large lion mascot took to the streets to take part in the village litter pick.
Reggie the Lion, mascot at nearby Africa Alive!, was helping members of the community take part in a litter pick, which was organised by the Parish Council.
Every three months, residents come together to make the village a more attractive sight, by removing rubbish and having a catch up in the process.
Along with the unusual mascot appearance, Councillor Bruce Provan also attended, with around ten people taking part in total.
Mick Sims, organiser of the event, said the litter pick was 'really good for community spirit' with everyone having 'a good old laugh and joke.'
