Nursery children in Sudbury learned the importance of keeping their local area clean and tidy, when they helped community wardens clear litter around Great Cornard.

Youngsters from the Bright Butterflies pre-school class at Woodpeckers Private Nursery took part in a litter-picking session in Cornard Woods and Shawlands.

The project is part of the nursery’s effort to get staff and pupils more involved in the community, and build on skills acquired in their Forest Skill sessions.

Emily Porter-Howe, deputy manager at Woodpeckers, said: “We were so proud of the children. They did a fantastic job, finding the litter and making sure it was put in the rubbish sacks.

“They listened carefully to the wardens, who explained to them clearly why we shouldn’t pick up rubbish with our hands and why it’s important to keep our town tidy.”
