MP Mark Spencer cleans up as he joins litter pick in Woodborough


Local residents took to the streets of Woodborough last week for a litter pick organised by local MP Mark Spencer.

The MP was joined by local councillors Boyd Elliott and Helen Greensmith, as well as people from the community.

The MP said he was pleased by the turnout.

He said: “We had a really positive morning in Woodborough for my litter pick recently.

“There was a good turnout of local residents, and we managed to get a good few bags of litter up off the streets.”

“I want to thank all the residents that turned out for the litter pick. They’re always really good events, and it’s always great to get out and about in the constituency.

Mr Spencer is now calling on other communities in his constituency to organise similar events.

He said: “If you think there’s a bit too much litter lying around, drop my office an email and we’ll see if we can get it sorted.”

The MP has previously organised and took part in litter picks across his constituency, including Calverton, Rainworth Hucknall, Bilsthorpe, Newstead, Halam, Farnsfield and Woodborough, and is keen to get as many community litter picks organised as possible.
