Creative pupils challenged to come up with a new name for a community footpath in Barnstone have been praised for their efforts.

Langar CE Primary School pupils took part in a competition, organised by Lafarge Tarmac’s Barnstone Cement Works, to name the path running from Works Lane to the playing field.

The winner was class 4 pupil, Kate, who came up with the name ‘Wiggly Waggly Way’. Company representatives presented her with a prize - a WHSmith voucher for the class to use and a Barnstone 150-year coin produced by the firm.

The rest of the pupils were given goody bags as a thankyou for taking part.

Josie Morrissey, the company’s environment and health and safety co-ordinator, said: “The children came up with some really creative ideas and we’d like to thank them for their efforts. The next stage is for us to get the sign produced for the footpath with the winning name.”

The company recently upgraded the footpath after working with the local 1st Barnstone Brownie pack.
