Members of the award-winning Malton and Norton Tidy Group hope to build on a successful 2013 when they continue their work to rid the streets of rubbish in the coming months.

Last year saw them pick up more than 170 bags of litter – and they are already enjoying a good start to 2014 by collecting 18 rubbish bags from Broughton Road, York Road, the railway station and Riverside Walk earlier this month.

The group, named Volunteer of the Year in the 2013 Pride of Malton and Norton Awards, continues to meet on the first Sunday of the month, alternating between Malton and Norton, and will next meet on St Nicholas Street Car Park, Norton, on February 2 at 10am.

This will be followed by the Big Tidy Up event across Malton and Norton on March 2, when it is hoped members will be joined by local youth groups.

Anyone interested in taking part should again meet at St Nicholas Street Car Park, wearing appropriate clothing and bringing their own gloves.

Further information about the Malton and Norton Tidy Group can be found on Facebook or Twitter.
