Children have ‘bin’ helping clean up the streets of Havercroft and Ryhill.

Pupils designed posters encouraging residents to keep the area tidy after two new bins were installed outside their schools by Wakefield District Housing (WDH) and Wakefield Council.

The bins were installed outside Havercroft J&I School, Cow Lane, and Ryhill J&I School, Chapel Street, after concerns about litter were raised by the Ryecroft Residents’ Group.

The winning posters were designed by 10-year-old Jordan Wright, from Havercroft, and seven-year-old Daniel Massey, from Ryhill. They both wore the mayoral robe for the day.
