YOUNGSTERS showed off their artistic side by creating a colourful banner from litter they had collected to promote a community clean-up day in Cramlington on Friday.

Year 5 and 6 pupils at Eastlea Primary School spent an afternoon making the banner, as well as posters and flyers, after being a paid a visit from town councillor John Collins.

Headteacher Emma Beeston said: “It is great for our pupils to support this event as it is something that will really benefit the whole community.

“We hope that as many families as possible will be encouraged to take part.”

The event covers the Eastfield Lea and Grange estates, with residents encouraged to put their rubbish in black bin liners, as well as remove larger items including white goods and electrical items.

Residents of Avebury Place, Abingdon Square, Alderley Way, Axminster Close, Bellburn Court, Bonchester Place, Brampton Court, Broomylinn Place, Byrness Row, Cadlestone Court, Cairnglass Green, Canonbie Square, Catrail Place and Clintburn Court can put out their rubbish between 10am and 2pm and a bin wagon will collect their waste.

The clean-up has been organised by Homes for Northumberland and Northumberland County Council.
