ASTWOOD Bank Park received a pre-spring spruce up recently with Redditch councillor Brandon Clayton organising a community litter pick.

Coun Clayton was joined by other councillors and residents from Astwood Bank who picked up litter in the local playground and surrounding area.

Mr Clayton said: "It was great to get out and do the clean up in the park. Although I have to say we did have to hunt for litter, as the nearby bins are well used."
