Hunstanton Recycling Hero's Competition Results - Christmas 2020
Hunstanton Town Council set a challenge to all children living or attending school within the town to take part in the Council Christmas Poster Recycling Competition. Children were asked to design a Christmas themed recycling poster that encourages families within the town to recycle more over the festive season. Ideas included drawing a Christmas scene or Santa Claus in his grotto, with the poster illustrating any items that should be recycled at this time of year.
Cllr Amanda Knight, Chair of the Council's Environment Panel, stated 'We had an amazing response from the children and the Council would like to thank everyone who took the time to enter the competition! You are all recycling superheroes!
The winning entries, who will each receive a £25 book token entry, were:
Harper Ottaway (age 4)
Crystal Somerton (age 13)
Mercedes Ottoway (age 10)
The competition encouraged children and their parents to think about waste, the environment and what items can be recycled at a time of year when the amount of landfilled waste usually increases. "Recycling is so important, it turns old things into new things", says Mayor Tony Bishopp.
All entries can be seen on the Hunstanton Town Council notice boards.
