The Reception year group had a wonderful afternoon on Saturday 19th June litter-picking in Ruislip Woods as part of the Keep Britain Tidy Great British Spring Clean – Schools initiative. The boys contributed 3,420 minutes of litter-picking and 171 miles towards the ‘Million Mile Mission’ litter-picking target.
The boys collected 29 bags of rubbish, plus a microwave and two car tyres. The most unusual piece of litter found was a horse rider’s stirrup!
The event was opened by our two local MPs, David Simmonds (Ruislip, Northwood and Pinner) and Gagan Mohindra (South West Hertfordshire). Holland & Holland Shooting Grounds hosted us, and provided refreshments and Waitrose Rickmansworth provided us with rubbish bags, hand sanitiser, gloves and water.
All in all a great event full of fun and such a worthwhile afternoon!
