South Lynn’s Harding’s Pits have been given a spruce up by teenagers taking on the National Citizenship Scheme.

Norfolk Team Two spent a day litter picking and weeding a section of the five-and-a-half acre beauty spot.

A spokesman for the scheme said: “We want to do this project because the area has the potential to be an amazing, beautiful and family-friendly place for a day out or a peaceful walk as well as being a nice place for wildlife to live in and visit.”

The clean-up operation was supported by Sainsbury’s supermarket and the DIY store, B&Q.

The National Citizenship Scheme is undertaken by students at the College of West Anglia in Lynn and promotes social and community action through teamwork and is aimed at youngsters aged 16 and 17.
