Youngsters at a Wearside nursery cleaned up their community with the help of friends.
Little ones from Oxclose Community Nursery School in Washington played their part in improving the environment.
Leanne Baxter, a member of staff at the Brancepeth Road nursery, said: “The children, teachers, parent volunteers have all been mucking in to keep the area around our nursery clean as part of our community litter pick.
“The children really got involved in keeping their community tidy and enjoyed the experience, even the rain did not harbour their enthusiasm.”
Leanne said everyone at the school would like to say thank you to all those who took time out of their busy lives to volunteer.
