His Worship, together with the Council’s assistant waste services manager Paul Gray and technical assistant Jeanette Edwards, made the presentation during a science week at the school. He told his young audience: ‘Douglas Borough Council has made a commitment to encouraging and promoting recycling in the Borough.

 

‘As the adults of tomorrow it is important that you are given the right information that will allow you to make decisions and encourage the adults of today to provide the Island with a sustainable future.’
