A CRADLEY and Wollescote councillor is leading a series of litter picks across his ward.

Cllr Richard Body is appealing for volunteers to join him for an hour on Saturday mornings.

This Saturday he will be cleaning Wollescote Park, on February 1 Cradley Labour Club, February 8 the steps between Brook Crescent and Birchfield Crescent, February 15 Homer Hill Park and on February 22 Wollescote Community Centre.

Cllr Body said: "The vast majority of the residents of Cradley and Wollescote take a pride in our area, it's just a few who continually spoil the area.

"Anyone who can give an hour of their time on a Saturday and would like to join me I will be starting at 10am each Saturday."
