Residents of Ballykelly can view some of the hard work going on at Ballykelly Primary School by visiting their community Christmas tree.

Pupils from primary 5, 6 and the 7 Eco Club got together to create beautiful tree decorations by reusing leftover items normally called ‘waste’.

Refuse collection staff from Limavady Borough Council sifted through collected ‘waste’ to recover plastic bottle lids which were then passed on to the creative students in Ballykelly.

The results of their inventiveness can be seen hanging on the local Christmas tree. Using the recovered lids students created mini Christmas trees, proving just how easy it is to reuse left-over materials to create new beautiful items we can all enjoy.

Residents and visitors alike are encouraged to go along to view the hard work done by staff and pupils at the tree which is at the junction of Main Street and Glenhead Road, Ballykelly.
