Pupils at Ramsey Junior School had a rubbish morning last Thursday.

Nine classes with more than 250 pupils spent the morning finding out about how the streets are kept clean and free of litter. A yellow road sweeper turned up at the school, sent by Huntingdonshire District Council with driver Robin Lambert, and pupils were able to have a go at using the high-pressure hose that washes the streets and pavements.

They then went on a litter pick of the school grounds.

# Clara, nine, and headteacher, Deborah Hannaford take their turn at using the hose helped by Robin Lambert. With them is Cllr Colin Hyams, responsible for operations, parks and countryside. Picture: DOUG McLEOD
