Fakenham Town Council enlists help of Fakenham & District Rotary Club for community litter pick

A town’s spring clean will see the council team up with a charity group to get it looking “spick and span”.

Fakenham Town Council is enlisting the help of the Fakenham & District Rotary Club for a community litter pick in the hope of making the area nicer for residents.

Last year’s event saw almost 20 volunteers take to the streets to gather rubbish, but the club hopes to expand on those numbers so a wider area can be reached.

Gordon Turner, chair of fundraising and projects for the Rotary club, said: “Litter is something that nobody wants to see and it's an opportunity to all get out and get the town clean and ready for the spring.”

The group will be meeting at Fakenham Racecourse at 9am on Friday, where there will be a briefing and all the necessary equipment will be distributed.

Volunteers will receive a free lunch at The Gallow at around midday for their efforts.

“Last year went very well, we had 15-20 people turn out including the mayor and some councillors,” Gordon added.

“This year, we hope to get more residents involved – the more of us there are, the better it will be as there are a lot of streets to cover.”
