Children teamed up to help clear litter in the area.

Pupils from Sunshine Nursery in Boldon and schoolchildren from East Boldon Junior School teamed up for a community litter pick.

After noticing lots of litter whilst on a walk around the burn, nursery pupils decided they'd like to help tidy up the area.

The nursery partnered up with East Boldon Junior School so children of all ages could come together to help with the initiative.

A total of five bags of rubbish were collected around the burn by the children. On their way back to school East Boldon pupils continued to pick up more litter.

Lisa Leyden, Manager at Sunshine Nursery said: "Our children loved meeting the older children and the connection with local schools is helping our children to become more confident.

"The children are becoming increasingly excited about learning about the environment and are proud of the animals lives they have made better by collecting this rubbish."

Both the nursery and school are committed to keeping the area tidy so it is a safe and litter-free place for people and animals.

They have agreed to meet once a month to continue their community litter picking initiative and will also organise a sponsored litter pick.

Mrs Taylor from East Boldon Junior School is going to start a litter picking club as part of enrichment time.
