Honiton PCSO Sue Rowe organised the litter pick, which saw 20 bin liners filled with rubbish.

St Paul’s in Honiton received a clean-up last week.

Honiton PCSO Sue Rowe was joined by district council and church representatives, and an army of eager youngsters.

Together, they cleaned up rubbish around the estate.

Mrs Rowe said: “The litter-pick went well. Everyone who helped got a free hotdog - the children were very well behaved. We filled about 20 bin liners with litter.”

Mrs Rowe added that the clean-up also taught children responsibility and not to be scared to pick up rubbish to keep their town tidy.

The next litter pick will take place next April.
