Suffolk promote cleaner environment with help from Felix Primary School
28 February 2023
Suffolk region have teamed up with Felix Primary School in Felixstowe to hold a litter poster competition for the Trelawny Place development in Suffolk.
50 students took part in the competition designed by Suffolk to design posters on site to keep the area free of litter.
The winning posters were chosen for their creativity, impact and ability to encourage residents to think twice before littering. Suffolk were delighted to invite four winners to a presentation at the development site Trelawny Place to install the new signage.
Commenting on the competition, Sales Director Suffolk, Lucy Woodhall said:
"We are delighted to have worked with Felix Primary School on this important initiative. The competition was a great way to raise awareness about the importance of keeping our communities litter free and we were impressed by the quality of the children’s designs. We hope that the posters will encourage residents to take pride in their local environment and help keep the area clean and tidy. "
Mrs Sam Carr at Felix Primary School added:
"The Felix Primary School classes involved in the Litter Poster Competition had great fun coming up with imaginative ideas for their posters. It really sparked off interesting and thoughtful conversations about why it is an important message to promote. Our four winners were very proud of their finished posters and had a wonderful morning, with their families, at Persimmon Homes when they were presented with their prizes.”
The development also boasts a range of other environmental benefits. The scheme will be home to over 300 new trees and will also enhance the existing hedgerow, pond and woodland habitats. To further improve allotment access for the local community, the region have worked closely with the local Allotment Association to provide an additional entrance.
More widely, we will also be investing over £1m into the local community additional funding for both the pre-school and primary school, as well as improvements to local bus stop infrastructure. Residents will also be provided with travel vouchers to promote greener modes of transport. We will also transfer 185 homes to a Housing Association partner for shared ownership or below market rent.
