Four staff from Dentons LLP UMEA joined pupils from Jubilee Wood Primary School in a massive clean-up of the Redway alongside the school. This was an action for the Citizens:mk Redways Relaunch campaign.
Working with Mitch Michener from Campbell Park Parish Council as well as Dentons, the pupils split into groups to clean different sections of the Redway.
“It’s great to see how enthusiastic the children are,” said Angela Monzione from Dentons. “What they’re hoping to do is adopt this area and maintain it. It’s going to happen for years to come, so it’s a project for now and for the future.”
“If we can monitor the area at least once a week, we can keep it clearn,” said a 10-year old member of the School Council.
“I’m using a litter picker and picking up some glass,” said a 7-year-old pupil, “so people riding their bikes won’t fall on it and cut themselves.”
“We love our Redways and want to look after them,” said head teacher Tony Berwick. “Our children are learning to love Milton Keynes, and that is good news for us all.”
