Communities team up for a mass tidy up of village.
As part of the Big Tidy Up campaign, spearheaded by Keep Britain Tidy, Golcar residents hosted a community clean up day.
And tomorrow those involved will be rewarded for their work to tidy-up their town.
Golcar's Nore Beaumont said: "We carry out the clean ups on a regular basis at our Golcar Lily days.
"This one was in connection with Keep Britain Tidy's event so it was a special one.
"It went very well and the Scouts turned out to help."
On the day they arranged for the removal and disposal of over 100 bags of litter and other dumped items.
Clr Mary Harkin, cabinet member with responsibility for the environment, said: "Thanks to the efforts of residents, many litter black spots have been restored to pleasant, clean and safe areas for public use once again.
"By providing the tools for community groups to undertake clean-ups in their local community we hope to continue to encourage this activity.
"We also hope that the minority who contributed to the litter and fly-tipping problem will respect the time and effort that has been made to clean up the area and will refrain from littering again."
