The clean-up was organised by the Wallington Village Community Association and the young people.

Charlie Scott, chair of the Wallington environment sub-committee, which ran the event, said: ‘Everybody worked hard to try to improve our village. We hope people will take notice and not drop litter or leave their rubbish the future.

‘We’re very thankful to the Sea Scouts and youngsters from the village together with their parents.’
