Cavell Primary School pupils create new sign to tackle little problem in Lakenham Way, Norwich

Creative youngsters have been involved in designing a colourful sign that they hope will encourage people to look after an area near their school.

Pupils from Cavell Primary School created posters asking people to keep Lakenham Way clean and tidy last year, and now six of their designs have been incorporated into a special sign that has been put in three different places along the thoroughfare.

The project has been run by the Friends of Lakenham Way, and the children whose designs were chosen are Chloe Ann Henton, 12, Lauryn Bowers, 12, Connor Jonas, 11, Georgina Mason, 10, Keeleigh Husband, nine, and Shanelle Dwyer.

Connor said: 'It is important to look after Lakenham Way because it is a nice place to walk and there is lots of nature there.'

Assistant headteacher David Hopkins said: 'The project was a fabulous opportunity for the children to design something for the local area. They had great fun creating their designs and took a lot of care and effort with them.'
