Youngsters at the forefront in tackling littering

Proud Of BD3

Schoolchildren from nine institutions and schools with the Lord Mayor of Bradford, Cllr Khadim Hussain

Bradford schoolchildren taking part in a positive community initiative have been awarded for showing commitment to tackling litter and keeping their community tidy.

Chaired by Cllr Faisal Khan of the Bradford Moor Ward, the Proud of BD3 group launched a poster and bin sticker competition to encourage residents and visitors to dispose of their litter correctly.

All the schools and institutions who took part were invited to Bradford’s City Hall to receive certificates for their achievements.

The range of different and colourful designs included some which read “Don’t make a mess – Make us the best!”, “Keep my BD3 clean” and “Don’t be a litter bug – Bin it!”.

The winning poster design came from 10-year-old Muhammed Ali Tahir from Westminster Primary School, whilst 7-year-old Safa Jabean from the same school was awarded the winner of the litter bin sticker design.

These winning designs will now be displayed across the BD3 area and the Proud of BD3 group has also organised a clean-up week in March with local schools and community groups.

Institutions and schools that took part in the initiative included Thornbury Primary School, Peel Park Primary School, Westminister Primary School, Killinghall Primary School, Bradford Moor Primary School, Delius Special School, Barkerend Primary School, St Mary’s and St Peter’s Catholic Primary School, and Masjid Ibraheem.
