Community group members and residents came together to offer their help with Breckland Police’s charity litter picking event.
Held in Thetford the police organised the event in the hope it would show that residents care about their town and help stop people littering.
The scouts, Norfolk Fire and Rescue, police cadets and local organisations including Inspire Focus, a project supporting young people into education, all took part.
The river was also cleaned with resident Sean Ready litter picking from his canoe.
Local street drinkers offered their support working alongside the officers in what the police called a “massive step forward”.
