Keeping Alvechurch tidy

Litter picking in Alvechurch

Children and adults from Alvechurch and Bordesley nursery, Crown Meadow First School, Alvechurch Middle School and Alvechurch Village Society show their enthusiasm for the village’s ‘eco-community’ initiative.

They spent an hour tidying up the village under the banner of Keep Britain Tidy, collecting nearly 20 sacks of rubbish from the streets and open areas, much of it recyclable.

“Many positive comments were received from local people, and the children enjoyed making a positive contribution to village life,” said Mark Clayton, eco-club leader at the middle school.

“This was the first of a planned series of events and activities designed to raise awareness of sustainable living within the villages that feed into the schools, and the children have been focusing particularly on waste and its reduction.”
