A tired – but satisfied – bunch of volunteers take a well-deserved rest in St Boswells.

They were part of a team – comprising community councillors and other local residents – of around 16 which had just cleared litter accumulated in and around the village during the winter months.

Council chairman John Pollock commented: “We achieved a decent result and collected a fair amount of rubbish, but it would be better if people didn’t throw away their rubbish in the first place.”
