THREE caring community schoolchildren have been cleaning up where they live for a police-led project.

The terrific trio of Charlie-Anne Walters, Elliss Worboys and Beibhinn Lawrie, all aged 11 and of Westwoodside, have been filling up their school holidays with litter-picks in the streets where they live.

Their community clean-ups have been taking place across Epworth, Haxey, Westwoodside and Owston Ferry.

The project is part of a scheme called Lifestyle which gets youngsters to come up with ways to improve their towns and villages.

Humberside Police will award community-keen groups with a range of prizes including a day at Disneyland Paris, adventure holidays, Silverstone racing gifts, mountain bikes and theme park tickets.

Emma Lawrie, 42, of Westwoodside, has been supervising the group.

She said: “They came up with the idea all by themselves and were very excited to get the project underway.”
