Residents are picking up on community spirit

RESIDENTS in a Grays community are out and about this morning cleaning up their area.

Members of the Orchards Forum in the Grays Riverside ward are enjoying the sun, but also showing great community spirit by taking part in a litter pick.

A Forum spokesperson said: "It’s a lovely morning for a socially distanced litter pick with the Orchards Forum - we are cleaning the alleyways around Benson Road and Salisbury Road.”
