Primary school pupils take pride in picking litter on their Muir estate

PUPILS have been picking up litter after joining hands with Muir to help give their community a head start on their spring clean.

Forty pupils at Darnhall Primary School in Winsford, linked arms with Muir staff to tidy up around the nearby Glebe Green estate where they and many of the Association’s residents live.

Robert Burrows, Muir’s Tenancy Services Officer for the Glebe Green Estate said: “Once again, pupils at Darnhall Primary School have shown just how proud they are of where they live.

“They rolled their sleeves up and did a fantastic job, setting a wonderful example and showing a great sense of community spirit.

“It was great for Muir staff to get involved and help the pupils achieve their aim of collecting litter and giving the Glebe Green community an early spring clean.”

In November, Darnhall Primary School pupils also worked alongside members of Muir’s housing services team to help breathe new life into the estate’s community garden, tidying up and planting new seeds which they hope will flourish this spring.
