He hates people dropping litter, and has formed a club to hold regular sessions picking up rubbish from public spaces
Environmental campaigner Fin Smith is just six years old, but is already making a difference in Cranbrook.
Last year he started a litter picking club, who are gearing up for a second session clearing up rubbish in the town on Friday, February 22.
Starting at 10.30, participants will spend about an hour tidying up the country park, the nearby streets and other public areas.
Fin said he does not like litter “because it’s bad for the environment. You shouldn’t throw anything on the floor, really.”

And he is shocked by people who do not use the waste bins provided.”Last time we found litter right next to a bin. Laziness!”
His mum and his two three-year-old twin sisters, Nancy and Penny, will be coming to help on the 22nd, but Fin wants “every single person in Cranbrook” to turn up.
