Nearly 70 bags of rubbish were collected as Great Dunmow residents set out on a community litter-pick as part of the National Spring Clean on Saturday morning (March 4).
Families and residents, young and old turned out to give Dunmow a lift as daffodils blossom and spring pokes its head round the corner.
A whopping 68 bags of rubbish were cleared away by the litter pick, organised by the town council, as well as abandoned tyres and even an old aquarium.
David Beedle, a Great Dunmow town councillor who attended the pick, said: “It was our best turn out which resulted in a great amount of rubbish being picked up.
“There were young mums with pushchairs and children, to get some of the young families out was brilliant.”
