More than 20 people attended the launch of the Bramley Wombles, a new group aimed at keeping Bramley tidy.
The Wombles met at Fairfield Community Centre this weekend and were launched with a litter pick around the Fairfield estate.
The group aims to encourage people to take greater pride in their community, as well as keep Bramley, Rodley and Stanningley tidy.
