Members of the Louth Civic Trust have ‘done their bit’ by helping to clean up the town as part of this year’s Great British Spring Clean.

The national scheme, led by campaign group Keep Britain Tidy, is now in its second year and took place over the weekend (March 4-5).

Louth Civic Trust members came out in their droves on Saturday to clean up parts of the town centre, with teams working along Kidgate, Aswell Street and Pawnshop Passage.

Overall, the volunteers collected 14 bags of rubbish.

Volunteers included Mary Abbott, Jon Carr, Pete Hickman, William Laverack, Ian Trousdale, Russell Howard, Bridget Clark, Barbara Dales, Jo Brogden, Kathryn Laverack and Jean Howard.

Louth Civic Trust chairman James Laverack said: “Louth town centre has become increasingly untidy over the last couple of years.

“We hope our efforts will encourage residents and businesses to take more pride in their area, making Louth a more pleasant and attractive place to live and work.”

• Another litter pick will take place on Saturday March 11 between 10am and 2pm.
