PUPILS in Meadows First School Eco Council were thrilled to receive a Keep Bromsgrove Beautiful (KBB) litter picking kit ahead of this year’s Great British Spring Clean.
Thanks to funding from Coun Luke Mallett, the KBB team was able to supply the school with branded high visibility vest, litter pickers and bag holding hoops.
Ms Date, who co-ordinates the school’s Eco Council, said “We are very grateful for the litter picking kit.
“The children were so excited to see it all and couldn’t wait to use it.
“We really appreciate the support from Coun Mallett and the team from Keep Bromsgrove Beautiful.”
As soon as their timetable allowed the children were busy picking litter up around the school grounds and along the public footpath by the school as part of their Great Big Schools Cleans which is running in conjunction with the GBSC.
A KBB spokesperson said “It really is fantastic we can support the schools with litter picking kits and help boost the activity which is already taking place. “The children love to wear the high vis vests and get out to clear up the local area.
“There’s no doubt that this will help to change behaviour in the future.”
