YOUNGSTERS have given a recycling lorry a colourful make-over after winning a competition.

The year three pupils from Whiteley Primary School were the winners in Raymond Brown Minerals & Recycling’s (RBMR) design-a-truck competition, and saw their pictures emblazoned on the 32-tonne eight-wheeled vehicle. The competition was part of RBMR’s campaign encouraging children to look after the environment.

Headteacher Lesley Pennington said: ‘It’s great for the children to see their artwork on display and travelling the streets. It gives their work a real-life context.’

Director of RBMR Steve Clasby, who helped choose the winning entries, said: ‘The posters from Whiteley were really eye-catching and it was clear that a lot of thought had gone in to conveying the importance of looking after our environment in a simple but effective way.’
