Jackson Square will be celebrating World Environment Day on Saturday (June 5) with artwork from five Bishop's Stortford area primary schools.

Each was tasked with creating a painting or collage focusing on the topics of sustainability and nature.

Pupils' work is on display in the main atrium and shoppers are invited to vote for their favourite, with a hamper for children to enjoy as the prize.

Centre manager Michael Smith said: "The event celebrates partnership with a host of local schools and brought together children of Bishop's Stortford to help spread the important message of caring about our environment and community.

"We're delighted that so many children took part in creating these amazing pieces of artwork and hope the event inspired them to think green in the future."

The Stortford schools taking part are Hillmead, Richard Whittington, St Joseph's Catholic and Thorn Grove, plus St Andrew's Church of England School in Much Hadham.

"We're delighted to have welcomed all five schools to help us create our Community Wall," said Michael. "Visitors can come down to the centre to view the beautiful works of art that so many children helped to create."

The display is part of a wider initiative called Jackson Square Cares, aiming to support the community and environment.
