On Saturday 26th May a group of volunteers from Sutton Village Church gathered in the car park on Junction Lane in Sutton. They were responding to a litter pick organised through local community group, Sutton Smile.
It had been identified that this area of the village had become a bit of an eyesore with the accumulation of litter and debris.
The volunteers were met by two of the local Rangers who brought a supply of gloves, litter pickers and plastic bags.
The church supplied high visibility vests which had the church printed on the back.
After a little over an hour's work, the result was astonishing. What was a very unkempt and litter strewn area that didn't look very inviting was transformed.
The excellent turn out meant that a lot was achieved in a relatively small time.
