A huge rubber spider was just one of the unusual items picked up by volunteers who set about making Hawkinge look its best at the monthly litterpick on Saturday morning 15 July.

Spreading out across the town, the volunteers and three local councillors collected more than 20 bags of litter.

There were the usual cans, bottles, sweet papers and fag ends but more unusual rubbish included a broken toaster, fishing nets and a very large rubber spider.

Veolia were also out cleaning today and emptying the litterbins. Hawkinge was looking spick and span by midday, let’s keep it that way.
