THESE five youngsters have taken on the task of keeping their fellow classmates up to date with the latest news on an open spaces scheme their school has adopted.
The Year 5 pupils at St Peter's School, Wisbech, make up the press team for the school's Octavia Hill project, which is being launched today.
The pupils, Demi Housden, Ashleigh-Mai Garner, Reece Clarke, Karl Wright and Jasmine Warren, are equipped with pens, notebooks and dictaphones ready to keep everyone informed of progress with the year-long project.
The Octavia Hill project is run by Peter Clayton, chairman of the Octavia Hill Society, who is aiming to create 100 spaces for people to enjoy around the world between now and 2012. This concept is based on the belief of Octavia Hill whose philosophy was to create open spaces free for everybody to enjoy.
