A group of young people from Old Goole took part in a community clean up during the October half term to do their bit to help the environment and their community.
The 22 youngsters took to the streets of Old Goole on Tuesday, October 26, starting from the Moorlands Centre and working their way through the estate to South Park, after gaining permission and support from Goole Town Council. The project was a collaboration between Goole Youth Action (GYA) and youth workers from the Moorlands Community Charity with funding provided by East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s Holiday Activity and Food programme. After managing to fill over 10 bags of rubbish in just two hours the youngsters will all be rewarded for their hard work with a trip to Xscape in Castleford. Phil Jackson GYA’s development co-ordinator said: “The young people had a real energy in taking on the challenge and doing their bit to help the environment and make Old Goole a cleaner place. “The young people said they want to make this a regular event which is very encouraging.”
