TOTS from a Bispham nursery are celebrating being crowned the winners of The Gazette’s Eco Kids competition.
There were smiles all round at Little Treasures Nursery on Cavendish Road after they created a work of art completely out of recycled items.
The competition, run in conjunction with Blackpool Council, asked children to create a model out of materials they would normally throw away.
Judges said they were wowed by Little Treasures’ entry, which was a fabulous replica of the Olympic stadium, complete with floodlights, athletes, hurdles and bicycles.
Blackpool Council’s BIG CAT – the mascot for the Blackpool is Getting Clean and Tidy campaign – went along to the Bispham nursery along with Coun Fred Jackson, responsible for waste and recycling, to congratulate the children and staff on their efforts.
The children are now looking forward to their prize of a class trip to Farmer Parr’s Animal World, Fleetwood.
Fiona Walker, manager at the nursery, said: “We are so pleased. The children really enjoyed making the model.
“They got to learn about recycling and making a model about the Olympics made it a good topic of conversation for them.
“They are really excited about going to Farmer Parr’s for the school trip.”
Sue Bentley, divisional promotions manager for The Gazette, said: “Little Treasures’ entry was a superb replica of the Olympic stadium.
“The competition gave the children chance to have lots of fun coming up with some tremendous works of art, while learning about all about recycling. We’d like to thank the entrants for taking part.”
