Paddling an 'oar-some' message

Evesham Editorial 12th Nov, 2021   0

EVESHAM’s MP Nigel Huddleston visited Fladbury CE First School to hear a message for the world about climate change.

The school flew two naval flags underneath the Union flag outside the school. The top flag represents the letter ‘W’ as well as meaning ‘urgent medical attention needed with the bottom flag represents the letter ‘E’ as well as ‘changing course to avoid a collision.

Shown together, the flags spell out the message that ‘WE recognise our planet needs urgent attention and WE must change course.’

Organiser and former Olympic canoe coach David Train said: “We’ve created a powerful message about both our heritage and our shared future. We have worked with Fladbury First School for over thirty years and it’s appropriate that our MP is able to visit to see what we’re doing.”

Mr Huddleston was given miniature versions of the flags to keep on his desk at Westminster as youngsters showcased their passion to tackle climate change.
