Local MP visits Cradley school

Stourbridge MP, Suzanne Webb answered questions about the environment from pupils at Cradley CofE Primary School when she visited last week.

Year 3 students asked Suzanne about how we can encourage recycling, what she and the Government is doing to stop climate change and what more the pupils and school can do to stop climate change.

Suzanne then met with the junior leadership team from years 5 and 6. They told her the school is charged for recycling collections and said this hinders its ability to recycle more and tackle climate change. Suzanne said:

“I had a great visit to this wonderful school and I was impressed with the pupils’ commitment to helping the environment.

“The Government is undertaking a great deal of work to ensure it keeps its commitment to make the UK net carbon neutral by 2050, such as developing renewable energy, banning petrol and diesel cars later in this decade and tackling energy consumption and pollution.

“But I was really impressed with how these schoolchildren wanted to do their bit to help. This showed real maturity and a desire to play an important part in limiting climate change.”

“Many thanks to the school for inviting me. I hope to return and see what the pupils have done.”
