On Thursday 1st December 2016 students from The Holgate Academy and Holgate Primary School took part in a community litter pick. The students from both schools removed litter from the bridge area that connects the two Holgate Schools together.
This event was organised by Ashfield District Council and the students were joined by Hucknall County Councillor John Wilmott and Gill Brookes from Ashfield District Council.
Once all the litter had been cleared from the area the students planted over 100 Daffodil Bulbs. We look forward to seeing these grow in the spring and brighten up the school field.
Our students take part in many community events, keep an eye on our school website for more. We will continue to support local residents with further projects such as this one. We are extremely proud of our students’ engagement with the local community.
