Local children clean up park

Published 5 June 2019

Children from Simpson’s Lane Academy in Knottingley celebrated finishing their SATs with a day in the park. Though they weren’t sitting back and relaxing just yet. They were picking up litter to improve the park, collecting 16 sacks all together, and adding planters to brighten up the area. They also did a street audit on the surrounding streets to highlight where improvements could be made.

Sodexo kindly donated the plants used for the planters and spent the day helping the children, along with WDH’s Estate Team.

Abbi Jones, Tenancy Management Officer, said: “Everyone had a fantastic day. The area looked amazing and we received great feedback from the children, teachers and the local residents. Everyone left on a high, it was the most amazing day.”
