Dover District Council is stepping up its commitment to crack down on littering and dog fouling by working in partnership with a private enforcement company.
The nationwide Keep Britain Tidy Campaign arrived in Alkham, near Dover earlier in March, with villagers keen to take on the challenge.
Volunteers turned out in force on Saturday 18 March to help clean the Nailbourne river where it runs through Tayne Field as well as clearing the village of litter.
The weekend of the Great British Spring Clean might be over but Kent County Council shows no signs of slowing down in getting the garden of England to live up to its name.
Can this be the most RUBBISH footpath in Kent asks Sandgate Parish councillor Tim Prater.
The first community litterpick of the year, led by Susan Carey in Hawkinge got off to a 'tidy' start on Saturday 11 March with 14 volunteers and fine weather.
Following the Great British Spring Clean over the first weekend in March, the challenge is to Keep Kent Clean and Hawkinge resident Nick Lord and Kent County Councillor, Susan Carey are calling for others to join them to get the town looking its best.
