The first ever Village Litter-Pick Day was very successful when held in Ironville and Codnor Park.

There were 25 pickers including children, who covered most of the planned routes, and collected 50 bags of litter. Many of the bags were very full indeed and the estimate is that those involved collected 5,000 pieces of litter around the various village footpaths and streets.
