Neighbours are needed to help the borough clean up its act in the annual litter pick this weekend.
Wokingham Borough Council has teamed up with neighbourhood action groups and parish councils to help make the borough and brighter and cleaner place to live, while restoring some civic pride.
Communities will be filling black bags with rubbish in Arborfield, Barkham, Charvil, Crazies Hill, Dinton Pastures, Earley, Evendons Neighbourhood Action Group, Hurst, Norreys and Wescott ward, Shinfield Rise, Sonning parish, Swallowfield, Twyford, Wargrave, Wokingham town centre, Woodley and Winnersh on Saturday and Sunday.
Finchampstead Neighbourhood Action Group (NAG) will be collecting litter on Sunday, April 28.
The Big Tidy up is in its fifth year and last year more than 800 bags of rubbish were collected from parks, community areas and village centres.
Litter picks and bags will be provided, but those taking part should wear protective gloves, suitable clothing and sturdy shoes.
