A primary school pupil from near Bury St Edmunds has won the annual School Litter Awareness Poster Competition run by Babergh District Council.

Maddie Scott, 11, from Cockfield Primary School, produced the winning design and was presented with her award by Christina Campbell, Babergh’s cabinet member for environment, who visited the school on Friday.

Maddie also won a froggy bin for the school and will be able to see her design on the side of the council’s little collection vehicle.

Maddie was joined by two other highly commended entrants from the school – Imogen Scott and William Talbot, who are both 10-years-old.

Tina Campbell, Babergh District Council’s cabinet member for communities, said: “This annual competition is a real highlight for me, engaging with so many talented pupils who create designs with such enthusiasm.

“It’s always hard to choose a winner, but this year Maddie’s entry really does deserve first place and it was wonderful to be able to present her with her certificate and the new bin for the school.

“Raising awareness of littering, the cost of it and how easy it is to avoid is an important task, and it can never be repeated too often that we all have a duty to stop dropping litter in our district.”
