Councillor joins young “Eco Warriors” for litter pick
Local children did their bit to keep Haringey clean yesterday, holding a litter pick near their school, joined by Cabinet Member Cllr Elin Weston.
Trinity Primary Academy’s Year 5 and 6 students, joined by parents and the community, decided that litter needed to be cleared from the Trinity Gardens next to their school.
Calling themselves the Trinity Eco Warriors, the Bounds Green Road pupils decided to write to the council about their planned litter pick.
Councillor Elin Weston, Cabinet Member for Children and Families, said:
“It was great to see Haringey’s young people taking proactive action like this, and taking pride in their environment. I was really pleased to be able to get involved and that our Parks team were able to join us and support the litter pick.
“We know that residents of all ages want to live, work and go to school in a clean borough and I’d like to say a big well done to the Trinity Eco Warriors for helping to keep Haringey clean and green.”
The council is committed to tackling those who dump rubbish in our borough. Find out how you can help Haringey catch those responsible
