CHILDREN from a Dalton school are pledging to make their holidays greener this summer.

Pupils in years five and six at St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School are among 3,000 students taking part in the Make Holidays Greener Week, an initiative from the Travel Foundation and Co-operative Travel.

Kerry-Ann Furze, branch manager at Co-operative Travel in Huddersfield, visited pupils to ask for their involvement in the scheme.

Each student is being provided with a scrapbook and asked to record their activities along with their ideas for a greener holiday.

Kerry-Ann Furze said: “The Greener Holiday scrapbook is a chance for kids to really make a difference and influence others whilst on holiday. We know that green issues are really important to youngsters, and this is an opportunity for them to make themselves heard.”
