Young children helped clear an overgrown cut through as they did their bit for the upcoming Mitzvah Day.

Tanya Charlton, who is organising Mitzvah Day on behalf of Borehamwood & Elstree Shul (BES), was helped by a small crew of youngsters from Yavneh Primary School on Friday to breathe some life into the path that runs alongside Tesco towards Yavneh College in Hillside Avenue, Borehamwood.

They helped to cut away and clear up bushes and undergrowth but also planted new bulbs which they hope will blossom in spring to brighten up the area.

They then posed with their gardening tools and were clearly delighted with their morning’s work.

Co-ordinator Tanya Charlton said: “We had a successful morning clearing up the cut through. It was out first Mitzvah Day project of the year. A huge thanks to Tesco, Yavneh College, BES, and Hertsmere Forum of Faiths for making this happen.

“Projects like this just show how when we come together as one community, we can do amazing things.”

Mitzvah Day, which falls on November 18, is an annual day of faith-based action that takes places every November. It involves people going out into the community to help others and volunteer in a range of projects.
