The Keep Filey Tidy (KFT) group has just celebrated its second anniversary.
KFT was started by two ladies who tackled litter with just carrier bags and latex gloves.
After a series of meetings the group was expanded and fundraising activities were held to buy grabbers, hi-vis vests and all the items necessary for a safe operation.
A spokesman for the group said: “We attend all the town’s major events such as festivals and food fairs. Local businesses support the group and we get plenty of thanks from residents.”
