Marlborough Primary School Keeps Wales Tidy
Pupils and staff from Marlborough Primary School in Roath joined the Environment Minister, council staff and staff from Keep Wales Tidy to launch Tidy Wales Week in September 2012. The school were equipped with Waterproof World waders for the task, and they proved just the job. The objective was to help tidy up a beautiful patch of Roath Brook running through Roath Mill Park.
The day was planned to launch Tidy Wales Week, but it was also intended as training for Marlborough Primary School so that in time, the school will be able to adopt this stretch to keep the brook clean of litter, and to learn about the ecology of the site.
Although a clean area compared to many other parts of Cardiff, the cans, bottles chip containers and sweet wrappers that were in the stream and on the banks stood out quite badly. The team removed 8 bags of rubbish altogether and the difference was amazing.
The kids all loved the day and couldn't wait to help again. For the full set of photos from the day see here .
