Free Maps for 11-year Olds

Alyn and Deeside MP Mark Tami is urging Flintshire schools to take advantage of a free map scheme by the Ordnance Survey.

The Free maps for 11-year-olds scheme offers an OS Explorer map to every pupil in year 7 of primary or junior school.

Mr Tami said: “All the school needs to do is order the free maps for their pupils online.

“The school also receives copies of the maps, which raise awareness of local geography and aspects of citizenship.

“This is an excellent scheme, which has seen almost 7,000 schools participate in.

“Any schools interested in participating can visit for more information.”
