Pupils fly the Green Flag
Eco-students have been helping spruce up North Park in Bootle through an organised litter-pick.
Pupils from Linacre Primary School’s eco-club joined forces with staff from Sefton Council to clear up litter left behind in the green flag listed park.
The litter-pick was part of an ongoing campaign to promote positive usage of North Park and to encourage the local community to look after it. Further litter-picks in the park involving schools and the local community are planned throughout the year.
Cllr Ian Moncur, cabinet member for children, schools, families and leisure, said: “It is very encouraging to see eco-pupils from Linacre Primary School get involved in the litter-pick and take some pride in their surrounding area.
“We are very proud of all our parks and green spaces right across the borough and we are very lucky so many of them have the prestigious Green Flag status like North Park does.
“We encourage as many people as possible to use and enjoy the parks but please remember to take your litter home with you or use the many bins provided. Dropping litter anywhere is just not acceptable and wastes time and effort that could be used to make improvements”.
