Residents and business owners in Barrow will be once again uniting next month to make the town centre cleaner.

Partly organised by Barrow Business Improvement District, the community litter pick will be taking place on Thursday, April 4 from the 'Spirit of Barrow' statue at 2pm.

The hope is that they can build upon recent success, with previous events this year seeing record attendances.

A spokesperson from Barrow BID said: "Whether you've attended a litter pick before or not, this is the perfect opportunity to meet new friendly faces whilst doing your bit for the town."

Along with Barrow Town Council, a number of local organisations will be getting involved, such as BAE Systems, McDonald's,, Holiday Inn Express, Furness Building Society, and Barrow AFC.
