A group of year 7 pupils recently got involved with ‘Not in my Neighborhood’ week. The week focuses on hate crime, litter, anti social behavior, criminal damage and so on. Working alongside PCSO Jo Ashford, Community Wardens Tony Lynch and Jackie Windard, the Year 7’s went around the local area to perform a litter pick.
