On Saturday morning Councillor Mark Joy got stuck in and attended the Rede Common Community Clean Up - organised by the Friends of Rede Common.
Large amount of rubbish were cleared to the areas to the rear of properties in Hyacinth Road backing onto the common.
With the help of Medway Community Warden Steve Lovicki, and Councillor Joy's son Alexander(!), the waste was moved from the clear up area to one of the entrances to Rede Common on Hyacinth Road for collection.
Also in attendance clearing the area were the Friends of Rede Common, other volunteers and the Community Payback Team.
