Design a real tree maze

East Cambridgeshire District Council is committed to doing everything it can to protect the environment and reduce carbon emissions.
 
Following the declaration of a climate emergency in 2019, we pledged to create an annual Environment and Climate Change Strategy and Action Plan in which we would outline our top 20 actions for the year ahead. 
 
As part of the 2021/2022 action plan, we will be creating two new Queen Elizabeth II Jubilee Tree Mazes as part of the Queen’s Green Canopy project.
 
To do this, we wanted to give school children across the district the opportunity to get involved in our plans by designing a maze made entirely out of trees!
 
We are asking children aged between 5 and 18 years old to channel their creativity to design a maze and submit their ideas to the Council. 
 
Once the competition has closed, two lucky winners will be picked and their maze designs will be brought to life at Ely Country Park. 
 
A junior maze aimed at younger children will also be planted alongside the main maze.  This will be maintained at a reduced height so that parents and young children can also enjoy this new feature safely.
 
The competition has now closed.
