Mark Westley Photography'BURY: Southgate Community Centre, Caie Walk'Community litter pick with children from Hardwick Primary and Middle and South Lee Schools joining residents and councillors.

Residents, school children and councillors collected around 25 bags of rubbish during a community litter pick last week.

Representatives from Hardwick Middle School, Havebury Housing Partnership, Nowton Neighbourhood Residents’ Association, Southgate Community Partnership and borough councillors Jo Churchill, Patrick Chung and Sarah Stamp all helped rid the Southgate area of the town of litter on Wednesday, with a dead badger among the more usual items found.

Cllr Stamp said: “I am always proud to see how many people turn up to support our regular community litter picks and this was no exception – we managed to cover a large area of the estate.

“Huge thanks go to the waste team at St Edmundsbury who always support these events, provide all the equipment and work with us to help educate the children that take part.”

“It was good to hear the children talk about the impact of littering and how they were going to share what they had learned with others back at school,” she added.
