Bike, bottles and boxes cleared by litter volunteers
An area of the River Linnet blighted by dumped bottles and litter has had a much-needed tidy up.
Bury St Edmunds Water Meadows Group organised a litter pick of the area from Holywater Meadow to Cullum Road, after Corsbie Close resident Joanna Van Kleeck highlighted the debris which had collected in the area, particularly near a footbridge.
On Sunday, volunteers wearing waders and armed with bin bags scoured the area for dumped rubbish, collecting items ranging from pizza boxes to a children’s bike.
Joanna said: “The River Linnet looks amazing now and is actually flowing.”
A total of 20 bags were collected.
