Eco-friendly students recently spent an afternoon cleaning up their campus.

The Castle Manor Academy pupils collected 50kg of rubbish including a pram, an old tyre, tins of paint, scrap metal and old garden ornaments.

All rubbish was bagged up, weighed and recorded as evidence towards eco schools green flag award.

The award is something that staff and students are working towards to acknowledge the extensive work they do to support their own and the wider environment.

Becky Baldwin, teacher and eco committee coordinator, said “We are proud to say our academy campus are tidy.

“We have had a big push over the last fortnight on litter and recycling.

“Most of the rubbish we collected has been placed over the fence onto our field from local gardens and the public footpath”.

Students are encouraging each other to continue thinking about how they dispose of their rubbish and to recycle wherever possible.

They ask Haverhill residents to follow their good example with the slogan from the Keep Britain Tidy campaign ‘Love where you live’.
