Whitwick Scouts yesterday (Saturday 8th March) teamed up with the Friends of Thringstone to litter pick around the village.
15 scouts spent the morning working alongside 7 village residents to collect discarded televisions, old tents and many sacks of litter.
County Councillor Leon Spence said 'We owe a huge thank you to all of those people who turn out, sometimes day after day, to make our village a better place to live. Both the Scouts and Friends of Thringstone have done an amazing job.
'It's such a shame that we need community spirited residents to litter pick but whilst there are thoughtless people willing to inconsiderately throw away rubbish I would encourage everyone to do their bit to improve our villages.'
