It was third time lucky for one parish council's spring cleaning event after two had been snowed off.

Cheddar parish councillors, joined by a group of public volunteers and staff from Will Sealey Cleaning Ltd, worked hard to remove litter from parts of the tourist village on Sunday.

They donned high-vis jackets and picked up their bin bags and walked along part of the Strawberry Line, around Kings Of Wessex Academy, down Station Road and to Sharpham Road Playing Fields to collect waste.

Most of the rubbish which was collected was plastic bottles, cans and glass bottles which can all be recycled.

Councillors started to speak to people who regularly cleaned the footpaths around Draycott Park and the centre of the village, who were keen to join in.

The council would like to encourage everyone to take their litter home or use the bins provided to keep the area litter free.
