Pupils ‘clean up’ to help local community
Public spirited pupils from a Coventry school are cleaning up the local area thanks to a new litter picking project.
Pupils from Eden Girls’ School, Coventry joined forces with young people from Gurdwara Guru Nanak Parkash, The Coventry UN Society, Coventry City Council and Police officers from West Midlands Police, to help restore Swanswell Park’s natural beauty.
Armed with bin bags and litter pickers the team were eager to tidy up the park as part of this year’s Great British September Clean.
The clean-up campaign urges people to care for their local area by organising litter picks and helping to create safe, clean spaces for the entire community to enjoy.
The team of 20 people had a productive day and cleared almost 20 bags of litter from the area.
Anand Patel, Principal of Eden Girls’ School, Coventry, praised the team for their efforts.
He said: “As a school that sits at the very heart of our local community, we are always keen to contribute to initiatives that help to improve our environment and the lives of local people.
“The pupils involved had a very enjoyable day and were pleased to see how their efforts helped to make a real difference.
“We hope to be able to continue with regular litter picks and look forward to clearing up more areas in the near future.”
