School’s primate project

As part of their bid to be more environmentally friendly, Thomas Adams School in Wem have been taking part in a project to raise awareness about the importance of recycling. The school will be working hard over the next few months to collect thousands of bottle tops for the creation of a sculpture in conjunction with the British Ironworks Centre near Oswestry.

The Ironworks’ Joanne Jones says, “Completely inspired by their environmental ideas, we chose to create a metal mesh mountain gorilla which has been designed to hold over one million bottle tops and will become the integral base for their bottle top sculpture. One of the world’s most endangered species, the mountain gorilla is the perfect symbol to help raise awareness for the protection of our environment and its species.

“It was fantastic to watch the students participate in the creation of the first leg of the sculpture’s journey and we’re very excited to see the piece come to life through their recycling efforts in the near future. This is a wonderfully unique and important project and we are very proud to be a part of it.”
