Rebecca Herd, Maria Fujar, Ashleigh and Megan Thompson, Wicktoria Gasir and Patrycja Beker joined other children from Croyland Primary School, staff from Wellingborough Homes and Wellingborough Norse to clean up Dale End park in the town.

Wellingborough Homes and Wellingborough Norse work with schools across the town to teach 10 and 11-year-olds about the impact of littering as part of the Young Citizens Award, which Wellingborough Homes co-ordinates. The award also covers street and fire safety and the impact bogus calls have on the emergency services.
