Pupils to launch city clean-up project
8:17am Saturday 22nd March 2014 in News
SOME of the youngest members of the community will be setting an example by reminding their elders to look after their neighbourhood.
This year's theme is 'water' with about 30 pupils kicking off the campaign by carrying out a litter pick next to the Lyppard Grange Nature Reserve ponds next Wednesday (26th).
A city council ranger will then be on hand to clear the ponds of debris.
Last year, about 200 volunteers took part in Take Pride clean-up events across Worcester.
“Take Pride has quite literally tackled some of the city’s grottiest problems,” says Cllr Matt Lamb, cabinet member for a Cleaner and Greener City.
“From litter picking to tackling dog mess and graffiti, from planting trees and plants to ensuring birds and animals aren’t endangered by our rubbish, our volunteers have left no stone unturned in their pursuit of cleaning up Worcester.”
