On Friday the 8th September Justin and Sherie Soper from Borderland Rotary Club joined twenty one pupils from Trefonen Primary School Rotakids Club for a community litter-pick of their local park.

After a health and safety briefing and putting on their hi vis jackets and disposable gloves, the pupils working in teams and managed to collect and dispose of 13.8kg of litter from their park.

Sherie, who organised the event with the school said, “It was just great seeing the enthusiasm in the children as they got stuck into clearing up the litter and it all got quite competitive. Great work from the Trefenon Rotakids and nice to see a really clean park. Well Done Trefonen Rotakids!”

Borderland Rotary are currently working with just about all the schools in the area doing various projects which include, environment groups, writing competitions, Operation Pollination, and more litter picks. Look out for Oswestry School in the centre of Oswestry soon.
