Castle View Academy students taking care of Hylton Dene
Students from Castle View Academy have been helping tidy up Hylton Dene, giving the paths from the school entrance in to the dene a spring clean during March. Litter had built up along the paths and in wooded areas in the dene to the west of Craigavon Road, so year seven students enthusiastically joined Learning Manager Elanor Johnson in clearing up bottles, packets, and other rubbish.
The group was joinedd bylocal police Community Support Officer Amy Burlison, who was impressed by how hard the students worked, and how well they behaved. "It's a great to get out and about with the young people" she said, "and to see them taking pride in their local area".
