VIDEO: Hastings Academy help brighten up the environment

HASTINGS Academy pupils helped brighten up the environment with a litterpick and planting event organised by Ore in Bloom.

The children and group members spruced up a piece of land owned by East Sussex Highways, opposite the academy last Tuesday. Heidi Hampson, secretary of Ore in Bloom, said: “An event such as this helps support one another in our community as we aim to continue to improve our local area.

“It was wonderful to have the pupils’ support.”
