Jewish youngsters have been sweeping up and sowing seeds to mark a monarch’s milestone.
Pupils at Wohl Ilford Jewish Primary School, Forest Road, Barkingside, rolled up their sleeves and picked litter around the school’s gazebo area last week.
The clean-up comes as part of the nationwide Clean for the Queen campaign.
The movement encourages groups to take charge of cleaning up schools and streets in the lead up to the monarch’s 90th birthday celebrations in June.
Schools and community groups across Redbridge have been taking part in clean-ups since charity Keep Britain Tidy launched the initiative in January with Country Life magazine and the Garfield Weston Foundation.
