Updated 15th June 2020

We invite children under 12 to design a poster to say why littering is bad for the Forest and why you #LoveYourForest.

  • Please use A4 white paper for each design

The winning design will be used around our Forestry England sites to help spread the message. Please ensure designs are sent to us via email or post by Friday 10 July. Don’t forget to include the child’s name, age and contact details of the parent/teacher.
