Pupils help to clear up the Common

STUDENTS joined council staff to help clean up Shenfield Common.
A group of 22 Year 12 pupils from Brentwood County High School teamed up with members of Brentwood Council to clear pond vegetation, put up an owl box and plant two chestnut trees on the land.
The scheme is part of the Countryside Awareness project and Tony Sleep, councillor responsible for the environment, said it was fantastic to see the youngsters making a difference.
He said: “It was great to be working alongside these enthusiastic young people helping make the environment of Brentwood better.
“I am pleased this first project in our joint environmental work with a school has worked so well and I look forward to many more.”
