Great British Spring Clean at Nursery on the Green

NOG Spring Clean

Families and colleagues from Nursery on the Green in Southall have been showcasing their care for the environment by taking to their local area for the Great British Spring Clean.

The initiative, which is the nation’s biggest mass-action environmental campaign, saw groups from the award-winning setting on Thorncliffe Road join forces to rid their nearby streets and verges of rubbish, which they then appropriately sorted into refuse and recycling.

Back inside the classroom, pre-schoolers took part in a series of themed activities to learn more about the negative effects of litter both on land and in the ocean and the ways in which they could help, as well as taking part in co-research using books and the interactive board.

It is for such activities that Nursery on the Green have earnt a prestigious ‘Green Flag’ award, the highest accolade in the internationally recognised Eco-Schools programme, which is awarded for exceptional environmental awareness and conservation practices.

Nursery on the Green Manager, Emma Littler explained;

“Taking part in the Great British Spring Clean provided the perfect opportunity to teach our little ones about the importance of taking action to protect our planet. Working together to keep our community clean was an extremely rewarding experience, and we are so lucky to have such a brilliant parent partnership, with so many volunteers that gave up time to help.”

The Great British Spring Clean took place from 15th – 31st March 2024.
