Peabody in the news

Week-long workshop for Pembury residents.

The puppet parade concluded an array of February half-term activities.

These included jewellery-making, football, table tennis, pool, basketball and ice skating.

The "waste monster" made by young residents on the estate

The puppet was made out of plastic bags donated by residents, to highlight waste, specifically around plastic bags.

This is a cause close to young people’s hearts, who want to encourage a plastic bag-free Pembury.

"I Love Pembury" eco-bags were given out along the parade route 

Diana, 11, said: “This parade was really fun even in the rain and I hope it makes people think about using plastic bags in future.” 

Peabody’s Director of Community Programmes, Veronica Kirwan added: “We hope that the project has raised awareness and an understanding of the environment.”
