Children at a Dewsbury school are taking littering seriously - getting out and clearing rubbish from their estate themselves.
Chickenley Community School is the latest to back our anti-littering campaign, Clean Up Yorkshire, which is encouraging readers to hold litter picks throughout June.
The school’s Community Champions did their bit today, taking time out from lessons to tackle the rubbish hotspots near their school.
Associate deputy head, Adam Wood, said: “The kids have each been given a zone of the estate to look after - and they are already making an impact.
“The idea is that over the next few months, and even years, they will see what a difference their actions have on the community they live in.”
On Tuesday we want everyone to pick up just one piece of litter - and the Campaign to Protect Rural England estimate that if everyone in the region who is able to picks up a bit of rubbish, then 2.5m pieces would be collected in one day alone. If you get involved, tweet with the hashtags #pickupapieceday and #CleanUpYorks.
