Hardy souls braved the elements last Saturday to offer their services at an Amble litter-pick.
Volunteers included members of the public, representatives from Amble Town Council, Amble Army Cadets with their Commanding Officer and the secretary of Warkworth and Amble Royal British Legion.
Bags of rubbish included a discarded Christmas tree. The event was organised by Amble Town Council.
A statement on the council’s Facebook page read: ‘Thank you to all who braved the elements to join us (and to those residents who did it themselves) in litter-picking around the town. #KeepAmbleTidy’.
