YOUNGSTERS in Malpas had the chance to go green for the day, as part of a council-led environmental workshop.
Hannah Williams, Ian Sullivan and Sarah Coombs – community safety officers from Cheshire West and Chester – visited children at The Beeches Pre School for the workshop, helping them with their recycling project.
They used environmentally friendly children’s book ‘George Saves the World by Lunchtime’ to convey the ‘reduce, reuse, recycle’ message and colouring-in sheets of Bob the Builder and friends helped to explain how many things can be repaired instead of being thrown away.
The children also went outside to collect the litter from the playing fields, and learned about which items can be recycled, and about where litter should go.
Sue Anderson, who runs the pre-school, said: “The children all listened well and the workshop was a fun way to reinforce what they have been learning about recycling and caring for our environment.”
She added: “We are very grateful to Hannah, Ian and Sarah for giving us their time and bringing this topic alive for the children.”
