The 1st Ormesby Brownies completed their annual litter pick last week.

The 10 girls and three Owls spent 80 minutes walking around the village and they picked up hundreds of pieces of rubbish.

This is the third year the girls have completed this task and they said their thanks to Great Yarmouth Borough Council for the loan of the specialist equipment which they report was a great help Picture: 1st Ormesby Brownies
