The school was presented with wildflower meadow markers made by The Men’s Shed Wokingham Without, with butterfly and ladybird emblems on, for them to paint and return so these can be installed at the Walter Recreation Ground to discourage visitors from walking over wildflowers.
The Eco Club asked Council to consider using its signage to encourage paper cup recycling at its community events such as the Summer of Fun.
Council asked the children to share their ‘switch off your lights’ signage so council can display this in its community buildings to encourage others to switch off lights when they leave.
The next Crowthorne Climate Summit will take place in June 2023.
