THREE winners from Eastwood’s Springbank Primary School were presented with prizes after designing labels for new recycling bins in the school.

Arron Brown, Lily Huang and Livia Bishop picked up the top prizes of an art set, a soft toy and a membership for the Woodland Trust Nature Detective Club.

The competition was run in partnership with Ikea which is working with pupils to promote recycling.

The winners were picked by the firm’s Green Group and announced at a special assembly where the school’s Eco Warriors, made up of pupils from each year group, discussed the Eco School action plan.

Sharon Shipman from Springbank said: “I think Ikea were struggling to choose between the entries. They said from foundation upwards they were quite amazed at the standard of drawings.”
