JERICHO residents took to the streets at the weekend to make sure their area was spotlessly clean as part of the annual OxClean, which sees community groups pick up litter across the city.

The Jericho community litter pick took place on Saturday morning, starting at the community centre in Canal Street.

City councillor for Jericho Susanna Pressel, who took part, said: “We had an excellent turnout this year in both Jericho and the Botley Road area, including several children.

“We picked up huge quantities of rubbish, and some of the worst bits of both places are now sparkling clean.”
