And doing their best to help tidy the town will be litter picking group Rubbish Friends who will be meeting tomorrow in Tesco's car park at 9.30am before tackling the litter in the hedges which border the A142 Fordham Road and Hatchfield Farm.

Visitors to the 500-acre National Stud will be able to see the resident stallions and to meet the mares and foals in the paddocks. Visitors on the tours are now also able to meet retired legends Lord Windermere, the 2014 Cheltenham Gold Cup winner, and Jack The Giant who racked up an impressive tally of victories under trainer Nicky Henderson.
