Win­ning de­sign for tree cam­paign

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SCHOOL REPORT -

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.

If you would like to make a con­tri­bu­tion con­tact the parish coun­cil on 01753 891582, clerk@chal­fontst­ or post a cheque to the parish coun­cil on Gravel Hill.
