Litterbugs the target of Leconfield trio

The Minions

The Minions

Have your say

A team of youngsters from Leconfield are preparing for a summer spent helping out in their community as part of Humberside Police’s Lifestyle challenge.

The Minions, who are Amy Bennett, Aimee Hoe and Natasha Shields, all aged 10, will be out encouraging people to use litter bins in a bid to help protect wildlife and improve the area.

Leconfield Parish Council has also granted the girls permission to transform an overgrown area in the village into a thriving nature reserve. In addition a new bin will soon be put in place at the village park.

The Leconfield Primary students are appealing for wild flower seeds, along with bat, bird and owl boxes to encourage critters to make a safe home in the village.

They have designed a leaflet about litter and wildlife which will be distributed around to members of the public. Print ‘n’ Promote sponsored the girls and has printed 500 leaflets. Lifestyle encourages young people to be involved in their communities. It is also a competition with the best group winning a holiday to Florida. Contact The Minions’s adult advisor on 01964 502180 to donate any seeds or equipment.
