The Eco Committee at Gore Glen Primary School in Gorebridge recently organised a sponsored litter pick of Arniston Park, raising £200 for the school while raising awareness of litter issues in the local area.

The children were so keen to get involved that names had to be drawn from a hat to choose the 16 litter pickers.

Teacher Amie Ferguson added: “It went really well, the children were very enthusiastic about going.”
