Rossendale Free Press - - The Rossendale Scribbler -

GREEN-FIN­GERED pupils have re­ceived a gold award for im­prov­ing their lo­cal en­vi­ron­ment.

Young­sters at Ha­zle­hurst Com­mu­nity Pri­mary School in Rams­bot­tom got in­volved in a num­ber of ac­tiv­i­ties in­clud­ing re­cy­cling, vis­it­ing a lo­cal wood­land and help­ing to re­duce car­bon emis­sions.

They also planted trees in their school’s grounds, cre­ated pic­tures and joined in Wood­land Trust events.

Their hard work has now been recog­nised with a spe­cial gold award from the Wood­land Trust.

Head­teacher An­neMarie Knowles said: “Well done to the whole school who man­aged to have a go at so many ac­tiv­i­ties dur­ing our Art Week.”

Karen Let­ten, Wood­land Trust schools and com­mu­ni­ties en­gage­ment man­ager, praised school pupils and staff on their achieve­ment and urged them to now aim for the plat­inum award.
