HATS made of tea bags, train tickets and cabbage leaves were on show as children and staff at a Stebbing nursery got creative with recycled materials.

The parade of hats at Patricia Pilgrim Memorial Nursery was part of a new environmental awareness initiative and the fantastic skills of the children were clearly evident. Prizes went to Charlie Tate-Stolworthy, Charles Tun, Thomas Pinner, Zara Morgan, Archie Rice, Theo Winsor and Isabella Muir.

A nursery spokesman said: "We were all very impressed with the creativity and imagination that went into this event.

"Well done to all, and thank you for the time and effort."

She added: "To support the education and awareness in the benefits of recycling we are awaiting news from the district council on the provision of recycling and composting bins. This will help us cultivate our lovely growing areas, with some truly organic produce which will be tended too by the children and then served up at meal times."
