WORCESTER’S MP got his hands dirty in a bid to clean up the city’s green land.

Robin Walker joined the Friends of Diglis Fields for a community litter pick and, in association with the Duckworth Worcestershire Trust (DWT), they removed one and a half truck loads of waste from the playing field.

City Councillor Simon Geraghty and Francis Lankester, Chairman of Friends of Diglis Fields, joined Mr Walker and young volunteers in the clean-up.

Mr Walker said: “I think it’s fantastic when local communities get together like this, take pride in the place they live and help to make Worcester a better place for everyone.




“Diglis Fields are a fantastic community amenity and I congratulate the Friends for all the good work they’re doing.”

The group was set up in September 2012 and has aimed to help protect and improve Diglis Recreation Ground and the Cherry Orchard Local Nature Reserve.


Mr Lankester added: “It is wonderful that people care about the Diglis Field and its surroundings, and get stuck in to help.

“It’s always a pity to see our green spaces spoiled by thoughtless litter louts, but the volunteers did a great job supported by the Duckworth Trust.”
