MORE than 40 bags of rubbish were collected from around Weston and Weston Hills during the parish council’s annual litter pick.

Ten volunteers from the council donned high visibility jackets and armed themselves with litter pickers and bin bags in a bid to tidy up the area.

Council chairman Anthony Casson said: “We have a litter pick once a year and have done so for several years.

“In total we cleared about 40 bags of rubbish. The worse places were Weston Playing Field and Small Drove.

“We do it to tidy up the area and make the villages look nicer but it’s very frustrating when people dump their rubbish right next to the bins instead of just putting it in there.”
