Students from a Somerset preschool worked together to tidy up their community.

Youngsters from Lympsham Preschool, in Lympsham Road, were excited to take part in the Keep Britain Tidy Big Spring Clean event earlier this month but after the arrival of the Beast From The East, their litter pick was cancelled.

However on March 15, they picked up their litter-pickers and put on their wellies and waterproofs and went off in search of rubbish.

They collected two bin bags of waste from around the cricket pitch, which neighbours the preschool.

Preschool administrator Sarah Hancock said the children were ‘very proud’ of their efforts.

She added: “They really enjoyed doing this and have asked if they can do it again next week, so we will be cleaning the village park next time.”

The spring clean aims to inspire more than 400,000 people to get outdoors and clean up rubbish.
