Winning design for tree campaign
A TEN-year-old pupil has won a competition as part of a council tree planting initiative.
Lilly, a pupil at Chalfont St Peter Academy, won with her design, which was chosen from more than 75 entries.
She received £125 in gift vouchers from parish councillors Michael Day and Kate Southworth.
Louise Roffey, a teacher at the school and headmistress Elizabeth Underwood said the children, after watching the Parish Council campaign video, were amazed by the facts they learnt about how much trees benefit us all and had all been highly motivated to enter the campaign competition.
Runners up were Daniel, Tia and Emily who each received £25 in gift vouchers.
The campaign, organised by the parish council, aims to raise £25,000 in order to plant 100 trees to help the environment, reduce pollution and improve the aesthetics of the village.
