YOUNGSTERS at Bagthorpe Primary School have made a stand against litter louts by brightening up the bin on a pathway outside the school.

Ashfield District Council has been working with the school for more than two years on various environmental initiatives, including activities like litter-picks, dog fouling surveys and taking in road sweepers and machinery.

Trevor Middleton, from the council, said: “This litter bin was due for replacement and we thought this was another excellent way of involving the children in helping raise awareness of littering and its effects.

“The finished painting really is a credit to them – they and the school should be congratulated in taking a very active and positive interest in their local environment.”
