With the rise of the “Attenborough effect” 2018 has seen a huge amount of press coverage highlighting how our oceans, beaches and seas are being polluted with rubbish and plastic having a major effect on sea life.

With this in mind Harlech Food Service decided to launch their Eco school competition in conjunction with the Gwynedd Councils maritime services. The competition was aimed at schools across the Gwynedd, Conwy and Anglesey County Council areas. Harlech Foods asked for the school children to draw a picture or write a poem which would promote “keep the beaches clean” theme.

The prize for the winning entry was £500 and an IPad for the school. After weeks of judging the entries the winning poster was a joint effort by Ilse Margreta Griffith and Elin Haf Owen from Ysgol Y Felinheli.

There were over 40 schools entered and over 500 entries. The quality of the entries made it very difficult to choose just one winner so there were also 2 runner up prizes of family passes courtesy of Surf Snowdonia. Runners up are Ceiri Davies from Ysgol Pentreuchaf and Ffion Mai Jones-Davies from Ysgol Abererch.

Keep your eyes peeled for the winners’ posters on and around our coastline. If you see the poster please feel free to take a picture and share to Harlech Foodservice @harlechfoods on Facebook and Twitter.

Harlech Food Service along with Gwynedd Council and maritime services would like to say a massive thank you and well done to all involved.
