THEIR continuing successful work on improving the environment of Kelty has earned the pupils of Clentry Nursery another green flag.

The children and families at the nursery, in Keltyhill Road, have worked hard over the last two years doing various eco learning and activities to achieve this.

Said the Nursery's Gail Stirling: "We have been caring for our environment which has resulted in many bird feeders and bug hotels being made.

"We grew butterfly and bee friendly flowers as well as tasty fruit and vegetables which we enjoyed eating. We were delighted when some of our garden produce won a couple of prizes at the local garden show last year".

Gail added: "The children have been learning about recycling, visiting our local recycling centre and have gained an understanding of what can be recycled.

"They have also enjoyed using our litter pickers to clean our local area and often ask to take the litter pickers on our woods visits as well.

"We engage with partners in our local community e.g. library visits, and do fundraising to support chosen charities too".

Gail, who is Eco co-ordinator at Clentry, concluded: "The work of the eco committee is vast and continuous throughout the year and we are now beginning our journey for our next green flag in two years time."
