These five sacks of litter were collected in less than 20 minutes by children walking to school in Canley. Two hundred children gathered the litter on their way to Henry Parkes Infant School, Prior Deram Walk, Canley, Coventry, yesterday. The head, Mrs Margaret Johnson, said that the children, aged between five and seven, all live within a 500-yard radius of the school. On Tuesday the children collected three sacks of rubbish from their own school grounds. Mrs Johnson said that the activity had been arranged in response to the "Coventry Evening Telegraph" litter campaign as an attempt to teach children to respect their environment.
"The city engineer's department are going to show a film on litter in assembly. We hope it will be a real educational process, but we need parents to back us up at home. "We shall say to the children that we cannot pick up all this litter every morning, so what is the answer? Hopefully they will say it shouldn't be dropped there in the first place."
