Haybridge High sixth-formers get Hagley Park looking spotless

Bromsgrove Editorial 3rd Apr, 2019

HAGLEY Park is looking absolutely spotless after Haybridge Sixth-Form community officers got behind The Great British Spring Clean and helped clean litter from the streets, writes Jonah Broom.

Armed with litter-pickers, bags, and high-visibility jackets they enthusiastically filled 13 bags in just 90 minutes.

Two chairs and a traffic cone were also collected.

Bromsgrove District Council supplied the students with equipment, including gloves and hand gel, and collected the rubbish at the end of the day.

The students worked in small groups and scoured the edges of the park adjacent to the village and Hagley railway station.

Hagley Parish Council members Mrs Burke and Mrs Sahota joined Haybridge staff members to tackle the Hagley stream which was full of bottles, plastics and cans.

The school’s sixth-form achievement co-ordinator Antonia Barnsley said: “Everyone very kindly gave their time to support this Spring Clean and took part cheerfully.

“It is certainly something Haybridge and our Sixth-Form Community Officers will do again.”

The Great British Spring Clean runs until April 22.
