Clean-up operation on canal bank.

VOLUNTEERS swept into Mirfield at the weekend to tackle littering in the area.

The group picked up litter and removed rubbish from Battyeford canal bank.

Members of the community had been urged to join the clean team to help make a difference to their local environment.

The litter pick was more than a hundred to take place as part of the Big Co-op Clean, a national campaign to encourage communities to tackle local litter hotspots together.

It took place during Co-operative fortnight which aims to highlight the benefits of co-operation.

Amie Higgins, from Mirfield Co-op, said: "As a community retailer the Co-op is committed to making a positive difference to local life.

"The Big Co-op Clean is a chance for members, customers and the community as a whole to come together and improve the local environment for the benefit of everybody."
