A society in Bexley made up of school pupils has been working to clean up a local park.

Bexley’s Schools Waste Action Club worked with the third Crayford Brownies to litter pick in and around Shenstone Park with hopes of “helping make the area look its best.”

All of the brownies who took part were keen to do their bit to look after the area where they live.

All of the rubbish they collected was separated for recycling.

Cabinet member for community safety, environment and leisure, counillor Peter Craske said: “It’s great to see our young people taking pride in where they live and helping to keep the community clean and green. We cannot be everywhere, so having residents who are willing to enhance the services we provide is good for all of us.”
