School pupils have been out in force to clean up their area.
Year 7 students from Brentwood’s County High School were on Shenfield Common, Brentwood High Street, on Wednesday to litter pick after receiving a litter awareness presentation.
The group, along councillors and the environment team, went out with litter pickers and bags during the clean-up.
On Tuesday, March 5, Year 12 students will be cleaning vegetation and creating insect habitats on the common.
The project is part of the school’s environmental awareness days and it is working with Brentwood Council.
