A "brilliant gang" of volunteers collected 38 bags of rubbish as Tidy Up Sawbridgeworth (TUS) embraced the Great British Spring Clean on Saturday (March 26).

TUS organiser Corinne Lewis reported the best turn-out of 34 environmentally conscious local38s, from "two energetic three-year-olds to a lively 82-year-old".

"They collected 38 bags of rubbish, including a bike from the river and 279 cigarette butts collected by two enthusiatic 12-year-olds," said Corinne.

"Thanks also to the amazing Patricia and Lynne who collected nine bags of rubbish from two lay-bys on the way to Spellbrook."

Corinne added that besides her group's regular patrols several Sawbridgeworth people took it upon themselves to battle against the growing tide of litter in the town.

"We are really blessed," she said. "We have so many people in Sawbridgeworth who are out every day [collecting litter]."
