Cwmbran Community Council hosted its annual Schools Eco Quiz for primary schools across Cwmbran last night.

The eager youngsters were put through their paces by skilled Quiz Master Andrew Meaney at the Congress Theatre. Questions covered areas such as “Its Our Planet,”  “Resources, Rubbish & Recycling and “Green Lifestyles.”

Vice Chairman of the Council, Councillor Anthony Bird, who helped present the prizes, said “The Council has hosted this event for many years. It’s a great opportunity for us to stimulate the children’s interest in ecological matters, sustainable development and global citizenship. It is also a wonderful example of partnership between the council and the local business community.”This year’s quiz was won by the youngsters from Ysgol Gymraeg Cwmbran. They receive a handsome trophy, a cheque for £100 and a visit to the local Knauf Insulation plant
