Lucy Powell and Councillor Bev Craig, Deputy Executive Member for the Environment recently visited St Luke’s Primary School in Ardwick to provide the children with new recycling bins and to talk to them about how to recycle well.
The visit was a result of a letter from pupils in Year 4 who were desperate to recycle more but didn’t have the facilities to do so. They wrote to Lucy to ask for new bins to help them in their efforts to be more “green.” Lucy raised this with the Council who agreed to provide not only bins but also extra recycling support in terms of visits and education.
“The letter from the children made me feel really positive about the future. It is young people like this who will lead the way in recycling and making our country greener.”
“I was really pleased that the Council not only provided bins but a whole host of other support.”
“It was fantastic to get the chance to go and see the children, they should all be really proud of themselves for taking the initiative to get in touch with me as their local MP and I hope that they can see that their efforts have paid off as they can now recycle more."
