Children brighten up their local area
11 November 2014
Pupils from Normanton teamed up with employees from Wakefield and District Housing (WDH) to tidy up their local community.
Children from Newlands Primary School took part in litter picking and bulb planting throughout the day on Wednesday 5 November on Wakefield Road and Church Court in Normanton.
Karen Parsons, Teaching Assistant, said: “These projects are really good for the environment, it’s always nice for the children to get out into the community and the people living nearby were really grateful and rewarded the children with some sweets.”
Claire Secker, WDH Tenant Involvement Officer, said: “It’s great to do projects with children in the local community as it teaches them how important it is to look after the environment.”
