Heroes assemble for village ‘Spring Clean’ blitz

A number of local residents, of varying ages, came together to tidy up Enderby village in  an organised event billed as “Enderby Coop Great British Spring Clean”.

Those taking part were asked to bring along their old Coop bags to use for collecting litter and a pair of gloves.

The group took to the village area between 2.30 and 3.30pm on Sunday 4th March and during that time managed to amass several sacks full of litter. The sacks were deposited outside the store at 19 Cross Street, Enderby for collection.
