Bury North MP James Frith rolled up his sleeves to lead a series of community clean ups across East Bury this Easter.
The litter picks formed part of the Great British Spring Clean, a campaign led by Keep Britain Tidy to encourage communities to get involved in keeping their neighbourhoods tidy.
“A near decade of austerity has reduced the service councils can provide to keep our streets clean and so communities across Bury and beyond are taking matters into their own hands, rolling up their sleeves and improving their neighbourhoods.
“Six year old Maya in Moorside wrote to me about litter in Clarence Park and so I invited her and the whole community around the park to join me to help clean it up. I also had residents raise concerns with me about litter in Manchester Road Park and on the Pimhole estate and so we did the same in those areas. In total, 50 people joined us to play their part in cleaning our communities.
“Through the work of groups like Keep Bury Clean I hope this sort of activity will become a regular fixture of civic activism in our town.”
