Students and staff at a Bury St Edmunds secondary school have joined forces with their MP to ensure their environment remains clear and clean.

A litter pick at Sybil Andrews Academy was organised by waste campaigner Karen Cannard and Bury St Edmunds MP Jo Churchill ahead of the Keep Britain Tidy’s Great British Spring Clean.

They were joined by students and governors from the school to comb the area around the school in Skyliner Way.

Karen, who is also librarian at the school, said: “It was great to see Sybil Andrews Academy staff, governors, students and their families come together for our first spring clean litter pick with brownies, local councillors and our MP Jo Churchill.

“It was especially encouraging to have on board the young people who clearly care about keeping their learning environment clean.”

In February, Karen and Jo teamed up to encourage more individuals and businesses in the Bury St Edmunds area to think about the environment and give up plastic for Lent.

Jo said: “It is great that awareness of the environment and our local area can start so young and I would like to thank everyone who turned out to volunteer.”
