Children’s Challenge – Operation Spring Clean 2015

As part of Operation Spring Clean 2015, school children from across Wolverhampton, were invited to design a poster to get the anti-litter message across.  Two winners were chosen and their designs were transformed ‘big-style’ and are now being carried on either side of 19 refuse vehicles in the city.

Sophie Rolfe, aged 7, of Castlecroft Primary School and Jasmine Johnson, aged 10, of Loxdale Primary School submitted their designs and were chosen by the judging panel as the winning entries.

The girls were invited to see the vehicles for the first time with their winning designs, together with Councillor Steve Evans, cabinet member for city environment.  They also received a sponsored ‘goodie bag’.  The full story can be read here.

We know that the girls families and schools are justifiably proud of them and hopefully, our residents and visitors to Wolverhampton, are too.

Across Wolverhampton we are beginning to see regular community litter picks being co-ordinated with the help of our many friends, user and community groups.  If this is something you’d like to get involved in – please get in touch.

You can do this by following Operation Spring Clean on Facebook and/or Twitter or by emailing wilf@wolverhampton.gov.uk or by calling 01902 551155.
