Little litter picker on a mission to clean up the Willows


A 5-year-old from Torquay is tackling a litter problem at the willows by picking it up himself.

Devon Hopkins has always picked up the odd bit of litter whilst out with his mum but after buying a grabber, Devon is now going out armed with a bag, collecting litter from around the area and returning home with bags full.

One issue Devon noticed, was a lack of a bin within the play area off Cormorant Close. With the help of his mum, he has emailed the council to enquire about this.

Devon on a mission

Devon has been out a number of times whilst he is off school for the Easter holidays, collecting litter and then sorting it for recycling.

Good work Devon!
