A humourous competition to highlight an anti-litter campaign in Gress and Back has now closed.

This successful competition attracted a total of 49 entries and Ann Palmer (aka Gaia the Garbage) the competition organiser, attributes much of the success to the superb posters advertising the competition designed by Julie Roxburgh, the support and encouragement of Iain Campbell of the Comhairle’s Zero Waste team, Pauline MacLeod, a teacher at Sir E. Scott School in Tarbet, who organised a class project around the competition, and the generous donation of prizes by local businesses and organisations.

The winning entry in the secondary pupils section was by Jessica Anna MacLeod. She has chosen as her prize a wildlife watching sea trek donated by Joe Engebret.

The winning entry in the primary pupils section was by Finn Globe, a pupil at Sir. E. Scott School, whose claimed prize was a high viz-jacket, litter picker and stationery set donated by Zero Waste.

Second prize in that category went to Aran Culley, who wins three free pantomime or cinema tickets donated by An Lanntair, and the third prize was won by Cara MacDonald, another Sir E. Scott entrant, who wins £50 worth of Co-op vouchers, donated by the main Co-operative store in Stornoway.

Other prizes were won by Anna MacLeod, who wins a Toadstool Seat donated by the Stornoway Trust, Daniel MacAlpine, the youngest entrant, another with three free pantomime or cinema tickets from An Lanntair, Alaister and Fiona Langley, whose joint entry wins them a school rucksack/bag, a laptop bag, a laptop sleeve cover, and two camouflage caps, donated by GDK Signs, Scott Murray who wins a canvas of his winning entry from Malcolm MacLeod Photography, Hannah Jardine whose prize is a £25 ITunes voucher from Stornoway’s Tesco Stores, and Neil Morrison who also wins a school rucksack/bag, laptop bag, laptop sleeve cover and two camouflage caps from GDK signs.
