Smarter Streets, Cleaner Estates

Arty Boston pupils have designs on cleaner neighbourhoods as part of an environmental awareness campaign.

Carlton Road and Staniland Academy pupils aged between six and eleven entered posters in a competition urging people to look after the local environment, keep their neighbourhood clean, not drop litter and tackle dog fouling issues.

Now the winning designs from Staniland’s Phoebe, Anita and Nikola as well as Carlton Road’s Julia, Kycie-Mae and Whitney – will be displayed across Boston neighbourhoods to encourage residents to keep their community clean.

LHP customer engagement officer Paul Kenny said: ““I was delighted to see the quality and the knowledge that the pupils showed when designing their posters.

“They are a credit to their communities and the posters will encourage people on their estates to take some responsibility for their actions regarding dog fouling, recycling and their bins and fly tipping – an outstanding contribution.”

The project is part of a wider clean-up campaign involving LHP, Boston Borough Council and Lincolnshire Police which included neighbourhood litter picks and recycling waste demonstrations with the school’s mini-police force.

The mini-police initiative gives pupils from Carlton Road and Staniland Academies the chance to be involved in learning about the work of the police.
