BBC Radio Cambridge & Mick George Interview
Recorded live at Mick George Weighbridge yard and recycling shed in St.Ives, listen in to BBC Radio Cambridgeshire’s’ Workplace Wednesday interview between broadcaster Jeremy Sallis and MG Finance Director Jon Stump.
The POSH foundation offices in Peterborough have taken on a different guise in recent weeks... they are now strewn with skip drawings of all kinds as part of the skips for schools competition in collaboration with Mick George Ltd. The aim of the competition is to help raise awareness for recycling and also raise funds for both local participating schools and the POSH foundation.
Pupils were asked to send in their designs depicting one or more of the following themes of recycling, sustainability, health and fitness or Peterborough United FC. "The response has been overwhelming," commented Nick Sheppard, Community Project Manager for the POSH Foundation charity. "And the creativity of the school children has been very impressive making it extremely hard to draw up a shortlist".
That challenging task fell to Darren Ferguson, seen here, with just a handful of the many entries. There is not long to wait though, as the winning designs are due to be announced after the half term break.
The lucky winners will then be able to see their designs being spray painted on to the side of a real skip by top graffiti artist Jonnie Barton. Watch this space for more information on the winning designs.
