Tomorrow has been designated an Alnwick town clean-up day in a partnership event organised by Alnwick Town Council and Northumberland County Council.

A community event is being organised between 10am and 2pm to help get the town shipshape for the Easter holiday period.

Various cleaning activities will take place during the day including litter-picking, street-sweeping and weeding.

A number of local groups have already agreed to take part, such as Alnwick In Bloom, Alnwick Area Friends of the Earth, Alnwick Cub Scouts, Alnwick Boxing Club and the Alnwick Chamber of Trade.

Any other groups wishing to take part should contact Bill Batey, council clerk, on 07971 810267 or email bill.batey@btconnect.com to get details and instructions.

Any individuals wishing to take part and able to give a few hours of their time should meet in the Market Place at either 10am or noon on the day.
