REDBROOK Primary School have said a big thanks to other schools in the area who donated their spare margarine tub lids.

The tiny school had been collecting the lids for the "Flora tubs for tablets" scheme, whereby a school could claim one tablet computer for every 50 margarine tub lids returned.

Having only 35 pupils, the school was pleased that it managed to collect over seventy lids – an average of more than two per pupil.

However, they then put out a call to other local schools to donate their left over lids.

Shirenewton, St Briavels, Lydbrook and Berry Hill all sent their spare lids, taking the Redbrook total to more than 100.

"We are so pleased," said Hilary Cacket, who co-ordinated the collection at the school.

"For a little school we have done really well and are so grateful to the other schools who donated their extra lids."
