The Great Wakefield Spring Clean

Published 27 March 2017

WDH has been working with local schools and partners, including Wakefield Council, to support the Great British Spring Clean.

During the week long campaign, WDH has helped schools across the district to clean up their local area, collecting 132 bags of rubbish.

As well as litter, the housing association also disposed of larger items like wardrobes, bike’s, scooter’s, headboards and mattresses which had been dumped

Tom Lawton, WDH’s Tenant Involvement Officer, said: “The effort that the children made to tidy up their area was wonderful. They were so enthusiastic and worked very hard. They followed instructions and worked together as a group really well. It was amazing to see the difference once they had finished.

WDH worked with schools including South Kirkby Academy, North Featherstone Junior and Infant School, Normanton Common School, Normanton All Saints School, Girnhill School and Streethouse School.
