It’s the culmination of this year’s anti-litter campaign and poster competition- giving young new forest residents their chance to spread the message to help protect the Forest.
Students from primary and secondary schools across the district were invited to design a poster for New Forest District Council, working with the New Forest National Park Authority. The four winning designs, chosen from over 100 entries, now feature on the side of the council’s refuse lorries and on posters around the district.
Congratulations to Noadswood School student Holly Flynn, age 12, and Gabriel Oram, age 9, from Beaulieu Village Primary, and to Laura-Jane Kells, age 9, from Hythe Primary and Jazmin Ramus, a 13 year old pupil at Testwood Sports College, will have their designs displayed on the lorries later in the year. The youngsters got the chance to see the first two lorries when they were congratulated by the council’s vice-chairman Councillor Alison Hoare.
The competition is part of the council’s environment promotions team’s work with local schools, which includes working with the National Park Authority to deliver assemblies on the problems caused by litter in the forest.Schools or community groups interested in booking a recycling assembly or talk can email firstname.lastname@example.org
