A TEAM of nine litter picking volunteers tackled Cam’s streets as part of the Great British Spring Clean clean-up campaign.

The hardworking team started litter picking from Cam Parish Council offices at Noel Lee Way in Cam and worked their way to Holywell Orchard. In two-hours they collected 18 bags of rubbish, two old tyres and a pile of discarded refuse including wood, metal poles and cardboard.

Event organiser Jo Lewis from Cam Parish Council said they had cleared an amazing amount of rubbish. She added: “The oldest piece of litter we collected was a crisp bag with a sell-by date of 20001!”

Neighbourhood Wardens from Stroud District Council also joined up with the litter pickers and cleared rubbish and debris from the stream running through Hollywell Orchard.
