Despite the howling wind on the seafront today, volunteers turned out in force to take part in a community litter pick.
Near 30 volunteers combed the Cromer beach for rubbish, helping ensure the Blue Flag beach stays pristine.
The event, organised by the Cromer Town Council. was the first litter pick since the end of summer last year.
'What's so fantastic about this event is that it brings families out,' said Cromer's county councillor Tim Adams.
'It means that parents can teach their kids about the importance of looking after their environment and how they can continue this work in the future.'

The town councillors added: 'A lot of people are talking about plastic in the sea at the moment, quite rightly, and this is one way we can help.'
Brenda Stibbons, another town councillor who helped to organise the event added: 'It's fantastic for visitors to see when they come here in the summer too, they can see that as a community we really care about our environment.'
