A Blue Peter Morning!

You would probably not associate Hethersett Library with the manufacture of hoovers, washing machines, television sets, microwave ovens, photo frames and place mats, but that's exactly what happened on a Thursday morning.

Of course the machinery wasn't real, but was put together by local children from re-cycled material such as plastic and cardboard tubes and boxes and any number of other Blue Peter style household objects.

Almost 20 young people took part in the morning which was part of the Reduce, Re-use and Recycle programme with all the props being used for a short community play written by local playwright Tony Vale.

The Play

Reduce, re-use and re-cycle was the message of a community play staged at Hethersett Village Hall.

Local Wymondham based playwright Tony Vale produced a 25 minute piece extolling the virtues of caring for the environment through the three rs.

The drama was the culmination of a two part event that had also seen local children making props from re-cycled material at Hethersett Library.

Officers from South Norfolk and Norfolk County Councils were also on hand to give advice on recycling and answer questions. South Norfolk Environment Officer Alex Bone explained the workings of the Costessey Re-cycling Centre and answered queries on "just what can be placed in re-cycling bins."

The light-hearted play with a serious message was performed by local actors Marie Stevenson, David Reynolds and Sam Jessop. Afterwards the audience of about 50 enjoyed refreshments.
