Beacon Hill has had its fill......
Woodhouse Eaves Plastic Free Group and Beacon Hill Country Park have joined together to tackle the increasing problem of litter in the Country Park.
Beacon Hill has been experiencing huge numbers of visitors recently which is fantastic. But sadly, more people means more litter. We need to remind members of the public that litter is harmful to the animals that call the Beacon their home.
We are asking pupils in Years 3 - 6 to design a poster that could be displayed around the park. We need people to stop littering, to take their litter home and to care for the environment.
Are you a keen artist or environmentalist?
Could you design the winning poster?
Download the activity pack at the end of this page to find out everything you need to know.
Enter your poster into the competition and you could get your design displayed around the park. One lucky winner will also have the opportunity to walk with the park's alpacas and learn more about how the Rangers look after the park.
Your poster needs to be A4. It can be portrait or landscape. It must create a clear picture when photographed or scanned. Feel free to use collage, paint, pencil, materials – but to enter you will need to photo or scan the picture for it to be reprinted.
There are 4 categories: Children in Year 3, Year 4, Year 5 and Year 6. The competition is open to anyone at St Paul’s Primary School or residents of Woodhouse and Woodhouse Eaves.
Entries must be scanned or photographed and emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org by 5 pm on Sunday 21 February (last day of half term).
The posters will be judged and the best one from each category will be made into posters to be displayed around the park. An overall winner will be chosen from these 4 category winners. The overall winner will be invited to join the Beacon Hill Rangers to walk with the park alpacas and learn more about how the park is managed every day.
