Bede’s Pupils Get Involved in Eastbourne’s Great Park Clean
On Friday 10 May, 200 pupils from Bede’s Prep volunteered to litter pick at local public spaces for Eastbourne’s Great Park Clean.
Pupils in Years 3 to 8 volunteered in groups to clean park spaces in the nearby Meads End area. The event was organised by Oliver Sterno of the Plastic Free Eastbourne campaign.
Mr Giles Entwisle, Headmaster at Bede’s Prep, says, “Having anticipated collecting a fairly small amount of waste, I was surprised by the amount of litter that the pupils managed to uncover and clear away from a relatively small area. Members of the public were forthcoming with positive feedback and the pupils really enjoyed doing something practical to take care of their local environment. Well done to all those who took part.”
