South Norfolk has been given a spring clean by the district's council.
Building on last year's 'Clean Sweep', South Norfolk Council has had its sweepers out and about across the area to ensure it is looking its best for the summer.
Parish councils and residents were asked to let them know about particular areas in the district that could benefit from a clean-up.
It also used social media to ask residents the places they thought needed a tidy.
Starting in May, in the Tiffey Valley, and finishing this week in Eastern Rivers Valleys, the council's fleet of sweepers have visited each of South Norfolk's neighbourhoods.
