Year 1 and 2 pupils from Concordia Academy in Union Road, took part in the Great British Spring Clean 2019 along with teachers and parent volunteers on Tuesday, April 9.

From March 22 to April 23 the Great British Spring Clean 2019 campaign is calling on volunteers to collet and safely dispose of litter from the streets.

Sophie Clarke, business manager at the school, said: “The children were super keen to get out into the community and tackle the litter issue Havering faces on a daily basis.

“Although the weather may have cut the event short, it certainly did not affect the positive attitudes and enthusiasm of our students.”
