The London Borough of Merton Neighbourhood Warden Scheme, in conjunction with the Neighbourhood Renewal unit, are asking local schools to give clean up their school grounds of an area nearby, in order to be in with a chance to win the £500 prize and trophy.
Packs will be sent to each school taking part, which will include a litter picker, bin liners and a camera for before and afterward photos. To be eligible for the prize and trophy before and after photos have to be submitted before the 31st of August. The pack includes information on cleaner and safer environments.
Neighbourhood Warden Supervisor, Ian Fall, said:
” This is a great opportunity for schools and pupils, to get involved in improving their local environment. Local wardens will attend the clean up day and lend their support, and I wish Merton schools taking part the best of luck. A clean and safe environment is something we must all work towards and projects like this allow us to educate and work with our young people.”
The Neighbourhood Warden Scheme works closely with the Youth offending Service, Prolific offenders group, Educational welfare and is managed by Merton Partnership against Crime.
