A SEVEN-year-old Bulwell girl has beaten off more than 400 rivals to win a competition to create a ‘Vision Of Nottingham’ as an eco-friendly city.
LEA DIMECH, of Our Lady Of Perpetual Succour Roman Catholic Primary School, was picked by a panel of judges as the top entrant in the drawing contest.
The challenge was to create an image that showed how Nottingham would be sustainable in ten years’ time.
Lea’s picture focused on green energy, such as solar power, and recycling.
Her efforts will mean her drawing will feature as part of Nottingham City Council’s climate-change strategy. It has also won a composting bin for her school, which is on Piccadilly in Bulwell.
Coun Alan Clark (Lab), who represents Bulwell Forest at the city council and is lead member for energy ans suatinability, commended Lea on her skill, originality and “understanding of climate change”.
