Secondary School pupils from Kings Langley can win their schools £200 by giving the parish council ideas on how to help the local environment.
Kings Langley Parish Council (KLPC) are inviting young people who are interested in the environment, promoting sustainability and helping the local community to put forward some ideas that could change the future of the village for the better.
Some suggestions are listed below, but participants can also come up with their own ideas:
- Document wildlife & map local green spaces.
- Set up or be part of a ‘grow your own’ scheme, growing vegetables to reduce food miles & plastic waste.
- Investigate brownfield sites as an alternative to the green belt sites in Kings Langley which are proposed for development.
- Identify wildlife, protected trees and other points of interest in the green belt areas proposed for development.
- Identify ways of reducing your (or your schools) carbon footprint.
- A plan for better signage for key walking and cycling routes in the village.
- Improve recycling in the village.
A KLPC spokesperson said: “Get together with a group of friends and put together a proposal, or put something into action and tell us about it. It could be a written proposal; a model; a video of something in action or a digital presentation.”
Project explanations must be delivered by to KLPC at Charter Court, Vicarage Lane, Kings Langley, WD4 9HR, by March 27.

Send queries to Debbi James-Saunders – c/o firstname.lastname@example.org
The winners, whose ideas will be judged based on viability and merit, will be announced by KLPC at the Annual Parish Meeting on April 20.
