PUPILS are being asked to put on their creative hats and design a logo for a council’s adopt-a-street scheme.

The competition is open to children aged five-16 who attend schools within the Royal Borough, until Monday, July 7.

The scheme encourages residents to volunteer to care for their communities by collecting litter from streets and areas in the borough.

Cllr Christine Bateson, cabinet member for community partnerships, said: “We have 18 schools signed up to adopt-a-street so it seemed a great idea to get them even more involved and invite the students to design a logo.

“Adopt-a-street encourages local people to volunteer to care for their communities and local environment through collecting litter from their local streets and areas. I am really looking forward to seeing the ideas and helping to select the winner.”

Cllr Natasha Airey, deputy lead member for children’s services and Windsor, added: “I was delighted to be asked to be involved with this project and to be one of the judges. I am certain it will grab young people’s imaginations and we will get many entries. Adopt-a-street has really grown since it started in 2009 and we now have more than 900 members with schools taking even more of an interest.”

The winner will receive a High Street voucher worth £50, second prize is £30 and third £20.
