Over 100 members of the Duke of Beaufort’s Hunt, took part in an organised litter pick on Saturday.

More than 100 miles of roadside were cleared of litter and rubbish, as family bubbles focussed on areas surrounding over 10 villages in Gloucestershire and Wiltshire.

Matt Ramsden, master of the Duke of Beaufort’s Hunt, said: “It was incredibly rewarding to see so many of our members supporting this initiative.

“We all appreciate our wonderful countryside, especially during recent months when getting outside for exercise has been so important.

“Helping to keep our green spaces clean and tidy is of high priority within our local community”.

Beaufort Hunt members cleaned roadsides surrounding the villages of Badminton, Sopworth, Alderton, Brokenborough, Long Newnton, Foxley, Hawksbury, Great Somerford, Dauntsey, Rodmarton and Nettleton.

A spokesman from the Hunting Office added: “Hunts are always keen to take practical steps to assist their local community and this litter pick is a great example of Hunt members getting involved to help maintain our rural areas.”
