Families, couples and kids all helped out as part of a town-wide litter picking force over the last two weeks.

Around 200 people collectively took part in Hitchin Forum's Spring litter picking fortnight, tidying up areas all over the town.

Usually an event attended by big groups, this time families were told to work on their own part of Hitchin as part of a wider community effort.

Organiser Bill Sellicks said: "We want to say a big thank you to all who got involved and those who helped spread the word.
