A GROUP of schoolchildren from Morpeth has proved that creative recycling can make a pretty picture.

After helping to paint a summer scene, Year 4 pupils at St Robert’s First School in Oldgate screwed on lots of bottletops in different colours to give the piece an added dimension.

The features included a rainbow, flowers, clouds and a butterfly.

The sessions were organised by social enterprise Leading Link and the children were helped by seven youth ambassadors from St Benet Biscop Catholic High School in Bedlington.

St Robert’s headteacher Vivien Cunningham said: “The pupils really loved creating something so visual and dynamic and we’re looking forward to adding the piece to our creative learning environment in the playground.”

Leading Link manager Lyn Horton said the ambassadors enjoyed going back to their old school for the project.
