CHILDREN at a Portsmouth school are celebrating after being crowned the tidiest in the city.

Pupils from Solent Infant School in Farlington are this year’s champions in Portsmouth’s tidy schools competition.

Prizes in the annual contest, run by Portsmouth City Council and sponsored by its highways contractor Colas, were presented by the Lord Mayor, Councillor Lynne Stagg.

Solent Infant pupils were named overall winners, winning a total of £150.

The competition is aimed at teaching children to care for their environment.

Cllr Stagg said: ‘It’s always fantastic to see so many schools taking part in this competition and I am delighted we have had 30 this year who have all been doing their bit to keep the environment clean and tidy.

‘Many congratulations to Solent Infant School who are leading by example and are this year’s overall winner.’
