A FIRE extinguisher, a chair, a television and broke traffic cones were just some of the rubbish picked up by volunteers in Crowthorne last weekend.

The Crowthorne Reduce Our Waste (CROW) campaign saw more than 120 people, including Beavers, Cubs, Brownies and local parish councillors, turn out to help collect 124 bags of litter from the areas around Morgan Recreation Ground on Sunday.

The litter pick is part of a larger campaign by CROW to gain Plastic Free status for Crowthorne from the action group Surfers Against Sewage.

CROW's Plastic Free Community Leader Georgie Morris said: "It was amazing. Such a lovely atmosphere and such a range of ages, from around five months to people in the 70s.

"Thank you to The Crowthorne Parish Council for providing tea, coffee, milk and sugar and electricity for the urn, and to all the volunteers who made cakes for celebrating after the event.

"Thank you to Vanessa Stephenson for planning the routes and arranging for all the equipment from Bracknell Forest Council. Also thanks to Surfers Against Sewage for their inspiration."
