hats off to the Appleby Litter Pickers

Fuelled by a combination of smoothies and home made flapjacks, these fine chaps have cleared around 9 miles of roads and lanes around their village and the surrounding area.


Back in March they'd collected almost 400 sacks of litter totalling a whopping 5.8 tonnes and are still going strong, determined to make where they live a cleaner, safer place.


They're also pretty good at juggling (apparently it's a requirement for anyone wishing to join in)


We think they deserve medals, pats on the back and never-ending cups of tea all round.
