Environmental Matters at Scargill School

Earlier today (Tuesday) I visited Scargill Infant School in Elm Park for a special assembly to mark the official opening of the school's new solar panels.  It was a fun event and the children had put a great deal of effort into making things out of recycled material as part of their contribution to help the environment.  My favourites were a model of Big Ben made out of plastic bottles and a wind turbine made out of cardboard.  Recycling is a big thing at Scargill - they even have a wormery to turn leftover food into compost!  Congratulations to all involved.
