The children of Kibblesworth academy were very keen to take part in litter picking to help the school gain their Green flag award. The Green Flag award will benefit the school and the local village by

raising environmental awareness, encourage the provision of green spaces and bringing together a community spirit while helping keep the local area green. This award also allows the school community to say that we have supported global change to our environment.

The academy approached Lamesley Parish council for a grant to support them in their green flag award journey and was awarded the full amount of £350.

The grant will fund £200 for the Green Flag fees and £150 for the resources needed to support the children, for example compost and recycling bins.
