SCHOOLCHILDREN have shown they think a tidy up campaign is far from rubbish after showing how much they love their town.

Youngsters from a host of schools across the borough have been sprucing up allotments and litter picking as part of the ‘Love Where You Live’ national scheme run by Keep Britain Tidy.

Schools that have pledged their support already include Copley Junior School in Sprotbrough, Stainforth’s Long Toft Primary and Kirton Lane Primary, Sheep Dip Lane Primary in Dunscroft and West Road Primary in Moorends.

Doncaster Council is also one of ten ambassador authorities supporting the campaign - the only one in Yorkshire.
