Eastmoor youngsters get the sack!

Published 11 November 2014

WDH worked in partnership with the Eastmoor Community Project and Getting Eastmoor Moving (GEM) as part of the national Big Tidy Up campaign.

GEM provide fun and educational activities for 5-11 year olds in the school holidays, and the 35-strong group were taught the importance not dropping litter in the first place.

Emma Wray, Community Development Worker at the St Swithuns Centre said: “It was great to see the children taking pride in their community with the litter pick and we feel that carrying out events like this is a crucial way to help develop their understanding of keeping the area they live in looking good.”

Chris Croxall, Tenant Involvement Officer at WDH, said: “Keeping our estates neat and tidy is an important issue to us and we’re pleased we were able to support the project. The children really enjoyed their day and hopefully the residents of Eastmoor will notice the difference the clean-up had made.”
