That part of town is being targeted by community group, Melton Matters, because they say the amount of rubbish discarded there has turned it into an eyesore.

The litter pick is on Sunday September 23, with those interested asked to meet on the grassed area at Lake Terrace at 10am.

Litter pick equipment will be provided by Mellton Council for the initiative, which will continue for two hours.

The town’s Tesco supermarket will provide refreshments for all volunteers.

Organiser Chris Fisher said: “The litter pick will start at Lake Terrace and head back towards Samworth Brothers as the grass verges and edges are strewn with litter.

“It all looks a lot worse now the grass has been cut and it’s an eyesore as you drive into Melton from Leicester.”
