A Sheffield neighbourhood group is celebrating winning a national award for improving its local area.

Owlthorpe Neighbourhood Watch group members scooped a prize at the National Neighbourhood Watch Environmental Improvement Awards for cleaning up their community.

The team removed debris and litter and helped plant more than 50,000 bulbs, plus another 11,000 before the spring.

Tony Dutton, part of Barnsley’s Neighbourhood Watch group for over 30 years, came second in the category of Outstanding Achievement.

The 74-year-old has spent decades volunteering with local organisations and has won many awards during the 13 years of the Barnsley Neighbourhood Watch Liaison Groups.
