ECO-FRIENDLY youngsters have been helping keep people on the move in Leamington.
Clean Air For Leamington and author Loll Kirby teamed up for a poster competition encouraging residents to keep walking and cycling.
Pupils at every primary school in Leamington had the chance to enter the competition. There were three joint winners – Anoushka Christodolo, Freya Precious and Maya Rübner Joergensen.
And town mayor Susan Rasmussen handed out the awards the prize to one of the three Leamington Primary School winners.
Coun Rasmussen said “We have all been enjoying quieter streets and roads during lockdown. Some people have taken advantage of them to run or cycle as families get out and about together.
“When schools and workplaces reopen there is a risk that our roads will be busier than before if people choose cars over public transport. We need to remind drivers to slow down and take extra care so that we can all use roads safely and improve Leamington’s air quality.”
Loll’s new book ‘Old Enough to Save the Planet’ tells the stories of extraordinary young people who have taken action to address climate change.
Talking to the girls and their proud families Loll said they were as inspiring as the children all around the world she has written about who are also ‘Old Enough to Save the Planet’.
The three winners all received their prize of a signed copy of the book.
