A colourful bench made from 572 recycled plastic milk bottles has been awarded to a county school who won a competition to promote recycling.
The competition was run from a joint stand provided by Northumberland County Council and Marmax Products, who donated the unique prize to Morpeth-based Nunnykirk School for Dyslexia
Rhys Jefferson from Nunnykirk School was the winning entrant and he got to choose which coloured bench to have for his school.
Headteacher Carol Hodgson said: “We are delighted to be presented with the bench, which I know the pupils and staff will use regularly.
“We have always made sure pupils take an interest in recycling and environmental issues in general.”
