Arriva Merseyside has won an environmental award as part of a national campaign to find Britain’s greenest companies, councils and communities.

The company, in partnership with Liverpool’s St John’s and Clayton Squareshopping centres and City Central Business won the Green Apple Environment Award over 500 other nominations.

The award will be officially received at a ceremony in the House of Commons on November 14.

The project saw Arriva and partners work acrossLiverpool to provide enough gardening equipment and expert advice to help local schools grow fruit, vegetables and flowers. Classroom based sessions encouraged the children to think about ways to help the environment – such as travelling by bus instead of car.
