The Great British Spring Clean -
Keep Britain Tidy!
On Tuesday 26th March, we called on everyone at Crab Lane School to improve the environment on their doorstep by taking part in 'The Great British Spring Clean', a campaign led by Keep Britain Tidy!
We started the day with a whole school assembly. During the assembly we shared what children would be doing, how to be safe when litter picking and expectations when leaving the school grounds. We had representatives from BIFFA waste services who came to help lead the day and brought resources for our litter pick. We all wore high-vis jackets and gloves, parent helpers too and we took turns, using pickers, to clean up our school grounds and surrounding area.
We also got to meet Wendy, one of Manchester's Street Monsters!!!
Wendy came to visit… Wendy is the original, no-nonsense street monster.
