A local litterpicking hero has been recognised for her contribution to keeping Thringstone tidy by North West Leicestershire District Council.

Nita Pearson, Chairperson of the Friends of Thringstone community group, goes out collecting litter on a daily basis - regardless of the weather - in an effort to keep the village clean, tidy and a great place to live.

Nita was presented with her award by NWLDC Chief Executive Christine Fisher, and officers, at a reception at the Council Offices last week.

Whitwick and Thringstone County Councillor Leon Spence said "Congratulations must go out to Nita who is a fantastic role model in our community.

"In addition to her work as a volunteer litter picker Nita also regularly spots issues and reports them to the council. She really is a community hero."
