UPDATED: Plastic Free Dorchester

  1. The Dorset Wrecks group from Weymouth welcomed students to the Prince of Wales School in Dorchester early on Monday 11th February by singing sea shanties. Lyrics to the tune of ‘What Shall We Do With Drunken Sailor’ were changed to ‘What shall we do with all this plastic’. The event was to launch the school’s Science Week, in conjunction with the Plastic-Free Dorchester campaign. Simone Greenfield reports and spoke to staff and parents for their reaction.
  2. Students from Damers First School have given a presentation to the Dorchester Chamber of Commerce meeting held at the Dorford Centre on 7th February. The presentation, entitled Plastic Free Dorchester, was to encourage local businesses to reduce their use of plastic. Rob Mott reports and spoke to teacher Edd Moore and some of the students.
