Year nine and ten students from three north Norfolk secondary schools have been recognised for their work in helping local businesses to go green.

A special celebration event and awards presentation was the culmination of five months of hard work by students taking part in the Aylsham Enterprise Hub Green Schools Challenge.

The students were commended by the judges for successfully completing the extra-curricular enterprise project, which included holding a business open event in school, creating an email newsletter and engaging members of the local business community keen to improve their green credentials.

The winners were: Most Influence on Sustainability - presented by Anglia News presenter Jonathan Wills - Alderman Peel School,

Wells.

Best Team Work - presented by Robert Tull of Business Link East - Cromer High School.

Best Community Relation-ship - presented by Jim Papworth of Papworth Farms - Aylsham High School.

Most Enterprising Student - presented by local green campaigner and EDP columnist Jason Borthwick - Georgia Gray of Cromer High School.

Alderman Peel students worked with the Holkham Estate to establish a garden of endangered plants in the school grounds. Once the plants and trees are established they will be transplanted to provide a community garden for local people.
