Patio table takes first prize in ‘Be resourceful’ competition

Chris Lee from Royston was presented with ten free swimming vouchers for Royston Leisure Centre after winning first prize in the ‘Waste Less Live More’ Be Resourceful Challenge which took place from 22-28 September. Mr Lee’s winning entry was a patio table made entirely from recycled builders’ pallets.

Be Resourceful 2014 winner

Rachel Taylor from Letchworth and Mrs Oram from Baldock were also sent prizes of free swims at Hitchin Swim Centre and North Herts Leisure Centre respectively. Their ideas on how to be more resourceful in everyday life included, ‘taking a cup for morning coffee on the train rather than buying and using a disposable cup’, and for ‘children to take showers rather than baths.’

All the competition prizes were kindly donated by NHDC’s leisure contractor, Stevenage Leisure Limited.
