In total, 24 volunteers went along to collect rubbish at the litter-pick – including four members of the Conservators of Therfield Heath and Greens.

The team was led by David Bubbins and was assisted by mayor Rob Inwood, who said: “It was a great morning and I just want to make Royston the best it can be and help get the message across to keep the heath tidy.”

On finishing their picking zone, each volunteer got a free hot drink from The Heath Café.

Clare Swarbrick, chair of the conservators, said: “It was great to see so many of our community having fun, and as a small charity we are very grateful for the support of the Friends in helping keep the heath tidy and safe.”

The group hopes to hold another litter-picking event on Sunday, December 6.
