Burnley school children help to spruce-up area
3:07pm Thursday 8th August 2013 in News
STAFF from Burnley-based housing group Calico have teamed up with pupils from Casterton Primary School.
They have joined forces for a number of events to help keep the area around the Thames Avenue school in good condition.
Members of Calico’s neighbourhood action team for Burnley North went litter-picking with around 30 pupils and staff on the Lanehead estate.
A skip was also provided for residents to clear any clutter free of charge.
In another event, the team joined pupils to help reinvigorate a number of flower beds in Humber Square by planting a range of colourful flowers.
Stuart Wright, from the Burnley North neighbourhood action team, said: “The two events were a great success.
“The pupils really enjoyed making a positive difference to their own neighbourhood.”
