EIGHT pupils from Thongsley Fields Primary School in Huntingdon have become Luminus 'junior wardens'.
Lisa Harris, a neighbourhood warden with the Luminus Group, organised and ran the scheme over the past few terms.
The children were taught about issues that affected their area, such as litter, graffiti and other environmental problems.
Chan Abraham, chief executive of the Luminus Group, said: "Our junior warden scheme is a fresh approach to tackling problems that affect the quality of life for everyone. Luminus has a firm commitment to invest in our communities and it is encouraging to see young
people making a positive contribution to society."
The role of the junior wardens reflects the role of the neighbourhood wardens. Over the next few months the company intends to expand to more schools.
