House Builder Helps Young Eco Warriors Fly The Green Flag Of Success
25 Jan 2016

Linden Homes North has been helping young eco warriors fly the flag of success following their school’s green award.

The developer – which is building new homes across North Yorkshire – has given its support to staff and children at the Kellington Primary School by donating the flagpole on which to display the coveted Green Flag.

The school has been involved with the national Eco-Schools Project since 2009, having progressed through the bronze and silver stages to attain the top prize of a Green Flag.

School business manager Nikki Hesp said: “Over the past year, all of the children in school have taken part in various projects and activities focusing on energy, bio-diversity, healthy living and the school grounds.

“When the assessor visited, he met with children from the School Council and Eco Council who gave him a guided tour of the school and grounds, explaining in great detail the projects undertaken and the impact they had had. He was very impressed with the children’s knowledge and their ability to answer his questions and we were very proud of the way they represented the school.

“The Green Flag is now flying proudly from a flagpole outside school, which has been very kindly donated by Linden Homes North.”

And while the school’s Eco Council plans to continue its good work and promote the eco-friendly ethos, Linden Homes sales manager Julie Hubbard got the chance to see first hand some of the ‘green projects’ Kellington Primary has been involved with.

She said: “It was great to see what the children and the school have achieved over the course of the past few years and was wonderful to witness their enthusiasm toward eco-incentives. They thoroughly deserve the award and we wish them continued success.”
