A loyal group of public-spirited folk turned out in Haddenham once again to help keep the village looking neat and tidy.
Organised by Haddenham Parish Council, the latest litter pick was carried out on Saturday 12th October and, despite somewhat threatening skies at the start of the morning, locals of all ages came along to help.
Pictured here are some of the team of volunteers, suitably equipped with the hi-viz tabards and litter pick-up tools supplied for the purpose. As you will see, despite many years of practise, we're not sure that Chris Young has quite got the hang of things yet. (Litter is the discarded stuff on the ground, Chris — we're happy to leave the redundant birds' nests where they are!)
Our grateful thanks to all who gave their valuable time in this splendid show of support for the village.
