Vote now for your favourite litter poster designed by the pupils from Ashfield Junior School!

Pupils from Workington's Ashfield Junior School are helping Allerdale Borough Council's Street Scene team combat litter.

As part of their topic on the environment and waste, the children have each designed a poster which will be used by the Council to help get the message across. Council officer Joanne Fisher has narrowed the number of posters from 157 to seven, which the public voting on the best design - with the winning design travelling the length and breadth of the borough on the side of one of the Council's bin lorries.

"They're all brilliant posters, so choosing the best is not easy," said Joanne, "We're looking for something which really gets the message across and fits well on the side of a lorry."

Teacher Sandra Stainton, said: "The project with the Council has really brought the issue alive for the children and they're really looking forward to seeing who will win."

Year Four pupils also helped with a litter pick in Newlands Park on Thursday 17 May, where they collected around 10 bags of rubbish and learned the importance of disposing of litter correctly. 

Joanne added: "It's been really great working with Ashfield Junior School and we are always looking to work with local schools as part of our education and engagement programme to help keep our communities clean.”
