Local school takes part in the Great British Spring Clean

Published 13 March 2017

 

Streethouse School has teamed up with WDH to take part in the Great British Spring Clean, a campaign created to clean up local areas and reduce litter within the Wakefield district.

Twenty-nine children, aged between 7 and 9 years old, carried out a litter pick in their local parks and streets. They collected 15 bags of rubbish all together, which is a fantastic effort from everyone involved.

WDH’s Impact Team collected the rubbish and took it to the local waste recycling centre.

WDH has supported the Great British Spring Clean with a number of clean up events across the district.

For more information about similar events you can follow WDH’s tenant involvement officers on Facebook in your area.

Tom Lawton, WDH’s Tenant Involvement Officer, said: “The children were wonderful and so enthusiastic about tidying up their area. Their effort was amazing and they were shocked to see the impact littering has on where they live.”
