Organisers are delighted at the great response to an appeal for volunteers to join a new Street Pride group in Tydd St Giles.
Sixteen people turned out for a litter pick round the village on Saturday.
They were responding to a call for extra support from the new group’s founders, Suzanne and Christopher Hodder.
Saturday’s event was organised to gauge the level of interest in the group.
Mrs Hodder said: “We were absolutely delighted and very pleasantly surprised by the number of people who came along. We all worked for a couple of hours and collected a lot of litter and everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves.

The group is the 12th Street Pride group to be set up across the district.
