THIRSK & Malton Green Party members recently cleared litter from two separate Ryedale locations.

First to be cleared was a stretch of the Malton to Pickering road using the lay-by just north of the High Marishes turn-off as a base. Next the group moved on to Ladyspring Wood, Malton, clearing it and and the old railway embankment of litter.

Josie Downs, secretary of Thirsk & Malton Green Party, said: “It’s likely that we’ll do more litter picks around Ryedale - so we invite people to tell us about bad spots they’d like to see cleared up.”
