Fir Vale’s Student Voice group thought it was the final straw when an article in the Sheffield Star said 50% of the worst streets for litter were in Fir Vale.

The students held meetings about the ‘Love where you live’ campaign and developed ideas for educating the community and role modelling, as a catalyst to prevent the litter problems in the future.

They also held a litter pick in April, working alongside the council litter campaigners. Students Omar and Ghaith commented that, “more money could be saved to help hospitals and schools if we did not have to spend it picking litter up.”
