Children of Sudbury's Woodpeckers nursery are doing their bit to keep the town clean - by taking part in litter-picking sessions with community wardens.
The community wardens teamed up with the nursery last year to go on regular litter-picking walks with the children.
However, the clear-ups had to be halted due to the Covid pandemic.
Deputy manager of Woodpeckers nursery, Emily Porter-Howe, said: "Our links with the community wardens of Sudbury have been so beneficial for us all.
"The children are able to take ownership and responsibility over looking after the our planet by litter-picking.

"Their pride and enjoyment of these little adventures is so wonderful to see.
"We take time to talk about all that we see in nature around us and we always find time to reward ourselves with a play in a park or open space."

Bradley Smith, supervisor/manager of the Sudbury Community Wardens, said: "It was great to be back out this week with Woodpeckers nursery, out litter-picking and exploring with the fantastic children.
"We have certainly missed their smiles and conversations during Covid and the times of restrictions we have had and look forward to continuing our long standing partnership.
"It’s great to see the children litter-picking and then enjoying the play areas that they have helped to tidy up."
