Enter to win Family tickets to Dinosaurs in the Park!

As part of the Love Essex anti-litter campaign, Chelmsford City Council is launching a poster design competition for school children under 16 years old. The competition aims to encourage children to take a stand against littering in a creative way.

The key message of the poster should encourage people to bin their litter or take it home, whether they’re out and about in our parks or in a vehicle.

There are exciting prizes to be won including family tickets to Dinosaur in the Park, free swimming vouchers for Riverside Leisure Centre and more!
