Pupils join the campaign to keep their village clean
Pupils at a south Norfolk primary school have given their backing to a council campaign in a bid to rid their village of litter.
Almost 100 pupils at Dickleburgh Primary School entered a competition, set up by Dickleburgh and Rushall Parish Council, to design an anti-litter poster which will be used as part of the council’s on-going campaign.
The winners were William Reeve in the older category and Scarlett Leeder in the younger category, who were presented with books written and contributed by parish councillor and children’s book author Terence Blacker, at the school last Tuesday.
Mr Blacker, said: “The children really understood why if we are concerned about the environment we have to start by keeping our part of the countryside free of rubbish.
“Thanks to the children of our village school, parents, brothers and sisters and friends will be also getting the anti-litter message. It’s pester-power at its best.”
A £50 prize was awarded to the school by the council for its part in raising awareness about litter and additional prizes for the best slogans were awarded to Lauren Taylor and Thomas Taylor. The campaign is said to be showing positive results in the village.
