( Campaign for the Protection of Rural England)
'I am so pleased to display the winning art work created by the children of the schools who participated in this year's event. Some 700 pieces of artwork gave us a real challenge when judging them all! As an avid supporter of the work of the CPRE, I find it heartening to see how they continually engage young people of all ages and help to teach them how to connect with the fragility of their environment. They really thought about the message of how pollution of all kinds in our atmosphere affects our planet. In particular the children were inspired by the night sky and how much we can or can't see when light pollution and poor air conditions combine. Well done to all the children who submitted work and many thanks to the art teachers who encouraged them and fired their imaginations.. Well done to the winners in each year' Val Cansick
The Rural Living Awards 2018 will be held in October when the children will be presented with their prizes
