Gallery: Litter pick brings community together in Bury St Edmunds

A LITTER pick in Bury St Edmunds yesterday has brought the community together as well as improved the area.

The event in the Southgate ward was the third organised by St Edmundsbury Borough Councillors Patrick Chung and Sarah Stamp.

It involved residents, children from Hardwick Primary and Middle Schools, Mayor of St Edmundsbury Tim Marks and others from the community.

Mr Chung said about 20 bags of rubbish had been collected from the area around the Hardwick Shopping Precinct and surrounding residential streets.

Mrs Stamp said: “It was fantastic and the best thing for me was seeing all the children so engaged.”

She added: “We had the schools’ councils and they were just so interested in it, seeing what they could find and talking about the problems around the anti-social behaviour they have seen on the estate.”

St Edmundsbury Borough Council provided the necessary safety equipment for the event.
