Community voluenteer litter picking

A community project has been launched in a bid to improve and rejuvenate a town footpath.

Newmarket Town Council has joined forces with a number of local organisations, including The Racing Centre, to work on the Yellow Brick Road, which links the centre of Newmarket with Studlands Park.

The first event for the community will be a litter pick where The Racing Centre will be working with Keep Britain Tidy to organise a tidy-up along sections of the path.
