The Romford MP Andrew Rosindell has launched the ‘Keep Romford Tidy’ campaign at Crownfield Infant School last week.
The campaign, that was launched to coincide with the ‘Keep Britain Tidy’ campaign, was started at the Collier Row Infant school following the pupils interest to keep their town clean and tidy.
Mr Rosindell said: “When I went to Crownfield Infant School, I saw the wonderful work the pupils had done.
“They had drawn some amazing paintings and were really keen to keep Romford tidy and are eager to look after their environment.
“We all have a part to play in keeping our town clean. I was so impressed with the school children’s work that I decided to launch the campaign there at the school.”
The MP added “I was thrilled to visit the school and so pleased with the children’s dedication to look after their environment. We must all play our part in keeping our town tidy.
“Here in Havering we have so many lovely parks and beautiful open spaces that it is important that we keep them clean and tidy and look after our wildlife.”
Local resident Sue, said: “This is a very important campaign. We are proud of all our parks here in Havering and we are lucky compared to many other boroughs with the amount of open space we have.
“It’s really important that we all play our role in keeping our area tidy and that we don’t drop litter or avoid increasing the level of pollution.
“We must all make an effort to lower our carbon footprint on the planet. “
This was the first time Mr Rosindell has launched his campaign at a school following his visit last week, he finished: “I was so impressed with the paintings the pupils had drawn and their commitment in protecting the wildlife.”
