SEVERAL bags of rubbish and recyclable waste were collected during a litter pick around St Stephen’s on Saturday (June 16).

Green Party city councillor Neil Laurenson teamed up with members of Perdiswell Community Church for the day.

The event was made possible thanks to donations of pickers and tabards from the Duckworth Worcestershire Trust.
