A YORKSHIRE Day litter pick at East Herringthorpe saw 30 bags collected — and residents have pledged to continue their efforts every week.

A large amount of fly-tipping was also cleared from the former care home site on Laudsdale Road during the clear-up last Thursday.

The event was supported by RotherFed with equipment supplied by Rotherham Love Where You Live.

And the group — to be called EH Pickers — will meet every Thursday at 9am at the High Greave Junior School entrance on Laudsdale Road. New volunteer pickers are welcome.
