East Durham Homes employees, year 6 pupils from Thornley Primary School and members of Thornley Residents Group donned gloves and grabbed litter-pickers to take part in a recent estate tidy up.

This is the fourth annual litter pick arranged by the partnership, with children this year also taking part in a sticker design competition.

With entries from across the school, pupils Emily Mains, Lucy Kelly and Adam Evans’ designs will now be posted on community bins to encourage people to keep the area tidy.

Carole Tilley, East Durham Homes Customer Involvement Officer, said: “It’s been great to be able to get all different members of the community together to get some fresh air and exercise and help tidy up the area.

“Partnership working is really important to us and this is a fantastic example of how different groups have come together to achieve a common goal.

“Well done, especially to the year 6 pupils at Thornley Primary School who have shown real community spirit!”
