Children across Southampton were asked by the City Council to design a Character to represent Recycling In Southampton. Around 200 entries from Newlands alone were presented to the judges, and it was so exciting to hear that 2 of our designs in the 8 to 10 age group have been chosen. Evie Flynn's "Monkey" design was the winner and Paige Wing's "Bottle" was chosen as Runner-up. Evie's design was also the Overall Winner of the competition.
Evie and Paige, and their families, were invited to the Presentation Evening on 25th March, (Click to see awards ceremony) which was held in the restaurant area of IKEA, in the presence of the Right Worshipful Mayor of Southampton. We are all very proud of Evie and Paige.
