FIVE town schools have been given ‘Keep Bromsgrove Beautiful’ (KBB) litter picking packs thanks to funding from Worcestershire County Councillor Shirley Webb.
Catshill, Fairfield and Dodford First Schools alongside Catshill Middle School, Chadgrove School and 6th Bromsgrove Scouts can now do their bit to help save the planet.
Each pack contained 20 white high visibility jackets and litter pickers for the children, four vests and pickers for adults, litter bags and a bag to hold all of the kit.
The vests were branded with the KBB logo and the name of the school or scout group.
KBB founder Sarah Milburn said she was thrilled with the packs.
“It’s so important to get the youngsters involved and we talked to them all about the importance of the hashtag #itstartswithus.
“If everyone starts to make a change, the problems can be solved.”
KBB wants to roll out the packs out across Bromsgrove and is urging local companies and organisations to help finance the project.
Coun Webb said: “I’ve been so impressed with the community spirit captured by the KBB group.
“It’s so important we have the opportunity to harness the enthusiasm of the youngsters at the schools and scouts who have already established eco-groups and are keen to do what they can to enhance their local environment.”
