YOUNGSTERS got their hands dirty in a bid to clean up their area.

People from Rowner in Gosport took part in a litter pick day, organised by charity Groundwork Solent.

The idea for the event came from a Groundwork Solent youth group called Mix-Up Rowner.

It comes as the group identified areas where they felt unsafe.

Broken street lamps were repaired and the youngsters also thought it would be a good idea to arrange a clean-up event.

Parents and children of all ages took part.

Joanne Fraser, youth and education project officer for Groundwork Solent, said: ‘It’s great to be able to support an event like this, particularly as the idea for it came from the young people of Rowner.’
