Litter Pickers

Bempton Parish Council would like to thank the residents who are keeping the village clean and tidy. These residents have taken it upon themselves to give up their time walking along the verges picking up the takeaway cartons and drink containers which mindless drivers/passengers throw out of their vehicles.

These volunteers are an inspiration to others and we thank them for their service to the village.
