Students Tackle Churchill Gardens Litter Problem

Posted on 16th October 2017

Having heard some concerns from the local community about the amount of litter students of the three Folly Lane colleges are leaving, a large group of Hereford Sixth Form College staff and students, including the Principal, Peter Cooper, assembled at lunchtime on Friday, 13th October to undertake a litter pick in order to address the problem and, hopefully, maintain good relationships with neighbours. The activity even drew attention from the local constabulary who were patrolling at the time.

It is hoped that this can be a monthly arrangement and the College will continue, as always, to remind students about their behaviour and their responsibilities.

Peter Cooper said, “It was really pleasing to see so many of our students volunteering to help in the community. We place a great deal of emphasis on making a difference to our environment and getting involved in local projects and work which improve where we live and are beneficial to others. Well done all and I hope to see many more students getting involved in the future.”
