Pupils join the great Cotswold spring clean
Children from Paternoster School are doing their bit to keep the Cotswolds clean this month.
The Cirencester special school is one of dozens of community groups which have already volunteered to take part in the Cotswolds Spring Clean.
Vicki Ponsford, deputy head teacher at Paternoster, said: "We are currently doing a project in the school about recycling and caring for the environment, so staging a clean-up event will fit in very well with that.
"The children are very enthusiastic about the environment project and were keen to start cleaning up as soon as the litter-pickers were delivered."
The eight pupils in Paternoster School's top class will be joined by staff to clean up the school grounds, its playing field and the area around neighbouring Watermoor Church.
The annual Spring Clean, co-ordinated by Cotswold District Council, gives communities the opportunity to make a difference to their local environment by targeting local litter 'grot spots'.
Refuse sacks and gloves are available free of charge to those participating in the event while tabards and litter pickers can also be borrowed from the Council.
Events held in March and April and organised through the Council will be covered by its insurance.
To register for the Spring Clean 2007, please contact Cotswold District Council on (01285) 623000.
