Volunteers weeded, cut shrubbery and collected litter as part of a community clean-up campaign over the weekend.
The group of 28 people were at Tweed Way Hall, in Rise Park, as part of the council’s Cleaner Havering campaign.
It was one of a number of clean-ups since the campaign was launched last year.
Lisa Gleed, chairman of the Tweed Way Hall Community Association Committee, said she was extremely pleased with the results and the efforts of all the volunteers.
Cllr Barry Tebbutt, cabinet member for StreetCare, said: “There have been a number of community clean-ups over the last year, but one thing that was great about this one was how many youngsters got involved.

“It’s really nice to see them take pride in the borough and set a good example for other youngsters in the community.”
