THESE youngsters tackled the tough challenge of litter in a beautiful town blighted by rubbish.
The Junior PCSOs from Lee-on-the-Solent Junior School were led by PCSO Brad Adams, a member of Hampshire Constabulary’s Alver Valley Safer Neigbourhoods team.
Wearing high visibility jackets and armed with litter picks, Emily Hayward, 10, Paige Haywood, 10, and Ellie Dowse, nine, were part of a team which picked up beer cans, plastic bags and sweet wrappers.
The team met at Lee Community Centre in Twyford Drive before patrolling the area around Megson Park and Common Barn Lane.
Graham Smith of Lee-on-the-Solent Litteraction and Marine Conservation Society, who regularly organises litter picks and beach surveys in the town, joined the patrol and spoke to the team.
