St Mary's RC School clean-up crew

Dressed in high-visibility jackets, gloves and armed with litter grabbers Years Three and Five pupils at St Mary's Roman Catholic Primary School took part in the Big Schools Clean-up, tackling the school grounds and public areas close to the school.

Children from Park, Staniland  and Boston West Academies, Swineshead and Hawthorn Tree primary schools have also signed up to do the Big Schools Clean-up this month and next.

Over the past three years 1,100 children have joined in. If your school wants to join in this year's clean-up please contact Jen Moore on 01205 314583.

Jen is Boston Borough Council's environment and sustainability officer, and organises the annual Big Boston Clean-up. The schools' event has become a spin-off.

Over the last six years the Big Boston Clean-up has removed an astonishing 65.5 tons of rubbish from the town's streets and waterways thanks to the efforts of more than 3,000 volunteers.

Jen wants to hear about town grot spots which need cleaning up. Contact Jen on 01205 314 583 or email her at jenny.moore@boston.gov.uk

More are needed to join the clean-up, which this year runs from Monday, April 14, to Thursday, April 17. Each day will start from Municipal Buildings in West Street at 9am.

Volunteers are asked to register on a pledge form http://bit.ly/1jaSPS7 where they can indicate days they are available when different areas of town will be tackled. They are treated to a light lunch as a reward for their efforts.
