A Harleston Primary pupil is celebrating after winning hundreds of pounds for his school in a nationwide competition.

The national Giving Nature a Home contest was organised by JDP, a stockist of civil and drainage products that has a store in Eye.

The task was to produce their dream design for a mini-beast mansion that could be used by small animals, insects or creepy crawlies – for example spiders, butterflies, caterpillars, snails, ladybirds or even frogs, toads and hedgehogs.

Year 4 pupil Bradley Cooper, aged eight, was chosen as the overall winner of the South East heat of the competition and wins £500 for his school towards an environmental project.

Bradley was also presented with £20 gift voucher.

He now goes on to compete in the national finals where he could win a further £1000 for his school.

Harleston headteacher Roger Walsh said: “The children were really engaged and enjoyed working on the topic very much.

“We are really proud of Bradley and his winning design.”

JDP regional manager Chris White added: “They all used their flair and imagination to get creative with the task, but when judging the entries, Bradley’s design in particular stood out for their artistic originality.”
