Pupils cleared Foots Cray Meadows just before the summer holidays

Pupils from a Sidcup primary school completed some litter-picking at Foots Cray Meadows just before the summer break.

Hope Community School works in partnership with Bexley council’s Schools Waste Action Club.

Pupils were sponsored by friends and family and the monry raised will be sent to their partnership school in India to help buy a new bus.

On passer-by, who was out walking his dog on July 19, said: “I’ve never seen the area looking so clean.”

Over 150 community residents from across the borough volunteer to litter-pick in their spare time, to keep the area looking clean and tidy.

A spokesperson for the council, said: “We cannot be eberywhere at once, so having residents who are willing to enhance the services already provided, taking pride in where they live and helping to keep the areas clean, is beneficial to everyone.”

Anyone interested in finding out more about volunteer community litter-picking, either individually or as a group, should email worksdirect@bexley.gov.uk.
