WASTE was a winner for Grange View First School.

The Widdrington Station school has picked up the prize for the Northumberland School Recycling Green Points Challenge in the Love Northumberland Awards.

Pupils racked up the points by having a waste-free packed lunch, school Green Week, donating old clothes to charity, designing compost bins and paying to wear green, with the funds raised to be invested in other environmental projects.

They also created a Green Grainger mascot, which was put on posters around the community with links to animations made by the children about issues such as recycling and picking up litter. Northumbrian Water presented Little Green Riding Hood about saving water.
