City MP Mark Lancaster rolled up his sleeves and joined Great Linford Parish Council on a Tidy Up morning around the local shops.

Helping with the litter pick, Mark was staggered by the amount of rubbish in the area which after a mornings work came to five buckets of glass, nine bags of recycling and 23 bags of litter.

Also found were a car tyre and battery, two five litre full drums of used oil and two filters, a ratchet and claw hammer, gas cylinder and a fish tank.

Mark was impressed by the 14 volunteers who came out to support the Parish Ranger Simon Bates and will be joining them again. He is also encouraging more people to support projects such as these, which sees the local community coming together to improve the area for all.

Mark said: “Events such as the tidy up are a great example of the improvements communities can make to their own area. I was really impressed with the commitment shown by all of those who took part and hope that that people will look out for similar events across Milton Keynes.
