They will be held on Monday and Thursday evening and people are asked to contact East Suffolk Council to get involved.

James Mallinder, East Suffolk’s cabinet member for the environment, said: “We can all help to tackle environmental issues such as plastic waste, starting in our own homes by reducing the amount of waste we use.

“However, we can really make a difference by getting whole communities involved.

“Looking at how it affects both us and the environment, it has never been more important to help local communities tackle these issues.”
