Poetry and the environment

9th June 1995 at 01:00
The National Trust, supported by the Vivien Duffield Foundation, is running a poetry competition called "Saving Places". Children in three age groups under 16 are invited to write about what is important to them in protecting the natural or built environment, and why it needs saving. Judges include poets Roger McGough, Gillian Clarke, and Sandy Brownjohn and actor Tony Robinson.

Winners receive gift vouchers for National Trust shops and every entrant will be sent a free anthology of the winning entries. Closing date: September 15. Teachers' notes and application forms from: 0181 464 1111.
