A group of residents sick of seeing so much rubbish in Pakefield Park took matters into their own hands.
A group of community-minded volunteers led by Miranda Kennett spent hours doing a litter pick last weekend.
'We do it because we use the woods and it's important to us,' she said.
'I have dogs and I come round here several times a week.
'Nobody is paid to look after it, but we use it, it's our space and we feel responsible for our immediate environment.

'Some of the rubbish is really unsavoury but if you leave it there it will just build up.'
About 10 volunteers spent Saturday (May 23) morning picking up litter around the woods off Love Lane, Lowestoft as well as out of the stream.
- 1 Air ambulance responds after man suffers fall in Lowestoft
- 2 Bridge to close with traffic diverted for 'routine' maintenance
- 3 Man charged over screwdriver robbery of teen
- 4 Concerns raised over 'excessive' feeding of ducks at popular pond
- 5 Driver swore at driver he crashed into before speeding off
- 6 Police appeal for help tracing wanted Suffolk man
- 7 Couple who first met at hotel celebrate six decades of marriage
- 8 Everything to see and do in Lowestoft
- 9 Swimmer in trouble at sea sparks lifeboat and coastguards response
- 10 Inquests open into deaths of two men missing since speedboat tragedy in 2014
And among the several of bags of litter they picked up they found several chairs, cans of paint, duvets and a table.
