Parents and pupils clean up

MEMBERS of Halkirk Primary Eo-school committee together with P5 and P6 children, staff, the Highland Council Countryside rangers and local volunteers undertook a litter pick around the school grounds and Halkirk village, recently.
Several plastic bags of litter were filled by everyone, as part of the Keep Scotland Tidy Group’s ‘National Spring Clean’ event.
Paul Castle, Highland Council’s Countryside Ranger said: “The village was actually extremely tidy even before we ventured out. We had to really search hard to find much litter which was mainly trapped in long grass, out of sight. All the kids did a superb job and the whole place, particularly the school grounds, now look much tidier.”
