Design a Dustcart Competition Lenham Parish News & Events

Our congratulations go to Leah French a student at Platt’s Heath Primary School. Leah French, 10, has beaten over 1500 Maidstone students to have her design chosen to decorate a dustcart, encouraging people to recycle all across the borough. The Waste and Street Scene team at Maidstone Borough Council set up the competition to get students thinking about being responsible with our rubbish, and were blown away by the number of entries received. Maidstone council’s Cabinet Member for the Environment and Housing, Councillor Marion Ring, visited Platt’s Heath Primary School in November to present Leah with her prizes – a £50 Go Ape voucher, and a goody bag including recycled pens and pencils – and this week was delighted to unveil Leah’s design on one of the borough’s rubbish trucks! Councillor Ring said: “It was a really tough task choosing the winner from so many excellent entries, but Leah’s did a great job of telling the story about why recycling is so important. Judging the competition, it was lovely to see that our younger residents have really taken on board the recycling message.” The truck featuring Leah’s design can be seen making its way around the borough now! sign a Dustcart Competition Platt’s Heath Primary School student Leah French, 10, has beaten over 1500 Maidstone students to have her design chosen to decorate a dustcart, encouraging people to recycle all across the borough.
