Pupils call for end to littering in rec ground

Children are helping to keep their local community clean by asking residents to stop littering.

Eco helpers from Roselands Park Infant School were concerned that not enough people were using the litter bins provided at the Roselands Recreation Ground so they decided to produce posters with strong anti-littering messages in the hope that they would encourage everyone to clean up their mess.

The posters are the eco helpers’ latest attempt to improve overall standards, both at school and in the surrounding area, and they have previously produced pamphlets to promote healthy eating.

After hearing about the children’s efforts to improve the appearance of the recreation ground, the council’s Neighbourhood First Team decided to laminate the posters and meet with the children to fix the posters on the railings in, and around, Roseland Park.

Eastbourne Borough Council leader and Liberal Democrat ward councillor David Tutt said, “The children have set an impressive example to local residents and have made a great effort to try and improve the appearance of this well used green space.”
