A team from Portsmouth Marriott Hotel, in Southampton Road, spent their Monday morning collecting litter. 

The litter pick was part of Marriott’s Associate Appreciation week. Each year Marriott marks the anniversary of its founding, May 20, by paying tribute to all associates for their dedication, commitment and outstanding service.

Martin Waters, hotel manager, said they wanted to give something back to the community as part of this, so organised the event.

He said: ‘This was our way of thanking the local community. Our team found a lot of rubbish and some horrible stuff. They collected 20 bags, with lots of car parts and flytipped waste. They worked hard.’
