Sheringham Community Primary School has been given 10 litter pickers and 10 bin bag hoops from NNDC to help them look after the environment.

The school’s Eco Group carries out weekly community litter picks and won a Total Green School Award earlier this year.

Head teacher Sue Brady said: “We would like to say a huge thank you to the District Council for donating the litter pickers and hoops to our Eco Club.  

“We encourage the children to take care of themselves, each other and their environment. They perform their regular litter picks around our school grounds and are now aiming to set an example to the whole community through their litter picking around the public places in Sheringham. 

“They are very enthusiastic and know how valuable their contribution is towards keeping the town neat and clean.  We are really grateful that with your help, we can now pick up more litter and hopefully encourage others to do the same.”

This year the school hopes to win another Total Green School Award.

Cllr Angie Fitch-Tillett Cabinet Member for Environmental Services said: “Sheringham Primary’s Eco Group is a wonderful band of people all taking great care of their environment. These children and teachers are setting a great example for us all to follow. North Norfolk District Council is pleased to support this initiative.”
