A group of pupils from St Joseph’s Catholic and Anglican High School, Wrexham, visited the Guildhall earlier last week to put their questions to Cllr David A Bithell, our Lead Member for Environment and Transport.
The pupils had been working alongside Together Creating Communities (TCC), a Wrexham-based community-oriented charity, to learn more about the impact of plastics – particularly single-use plastics – on the environment.
As part of their work, they wanted to learn more about the work carried out by Wrexham Council to reduce its use of single-use plastics, and lessen any impact on the environment.
As well as speaking to the Lead Member, they also passed on letters noting their concerns to every member of Wrexham Council.
Cllr Bithell said: “I was very pleased to meet the pupils from St Joseph’s School and hear what they had to say about issues such as cutting down on single-use plastics, the effects of climate change and much more.
“Their passion for what we discussed during the morning was very clear – but I was also very impressed by the level of questions they put to me, and their grasp of a range of environmental issues.
“I’d like to thank them for coming to present to me and ask questions, and I’d be happy to discuss these issues with them again in the future.”
