TWO teenagers have taken it upon themselves to keep a number of villages free from litter.

Monty Coyle (pictured), of Ropsley, and Conor Coyle, of Humby, have taken on the role of community cleaners on behalf of Ropsley and District Parish Council, covering their villages plus Braceby and Sapperton.

The pair, both pupils of King’s School in Grantham, began their new role in May, and since then Monty alone has collected more than 30 bin liners of litter. As well as food containers, his haul included car hubcaps, a car tyre and clothing.

Parish council member Jane Arundel said: “Despite their continuing efforts, the boys state rather sadly that it only takes a just over a week before the litter starts to build up again.”

Monty and Conor will continue in their roles until October.
