A right Royal tidy-up

YOUNGSTERS from a Worcester school were among those who took part in the nationwide ‘Clean for the Queen’ campaign.

Pupils from St.George’s RC Primary School joined city MP Robin Walker and the Mayor of Worcester, Coun Roger Knight on Friday (March 4) for a litter pick between the school and Gheluvelt Park.

The children wore crowns and tiaras with materials provided by the Duckworth Worcestershire Trust (DWT) which manages woodland and riverside sites owned by Worcester City Council.

They were even treated to a royal spread of cucumber sandwiches and cakes after the litter pick.

Róisín Hanks, DWT project manager said: “This year the school’s ‘Eco Club’ has been focusing on litter and the children thought it would be nice to help improve their immediate surroundings.”

Coun Knight said: “Educating young people on litter may change attitudes, helping to improve our environment for the future.

A number of city groups have already taken part in the project including staff at Warndon Villages’ Tesco, Friends of Warndon Villages, Friends of St. Peters, Friends of Diglis Fields and local Brownies and Guides.
