YOUNGSTERS learned a valuable lesson in keeping litter off the streets by a group of eco-friendly pirates.
Penhale Infant School in Fratton, Portsmouth, hosted the pirate actors from theatre group, Desperate Men, who performed their Pirates of the Carry Bin show.
Clive Rankin, Portsmouth City Council’s clean city manager, said: ‘The pirates are a great way of encouraging the children to think about litter.
‘The show is all about how the pirates have been keeping their “treasure” - litter - safe in their chest while away at sea.
‘They then need to hide the treasure when they come ashore.’
The visit was funded by Colas, the city’s highways contractor.
