Schoolgirl Spends Free Time Cleaning Local Town

A schoolgirl ex-pat spends her free time clearing her new hometown of litter and even learned the local language in the process.

Little Lilly Platt, who moved from London to near Utrecht, Holland, three years ago, decided she wanted to help the planet.

Along with her grandad Jim, the nine-year-old goes on daily walks that can last up to two hours and picks up any bottles and wrappers that she finds on the ground.

At weekends the mini-conservationist organises hour long litter picks that include her school friends, family and local refugee children’s groups.
