DARLINGTON primary school pupils are helping a supermarket tackle the problem of stolen and abandoned shopping trolleys. Whinfield Primary School youngsters produced posters for their local Asda superstore to highlight the issue after Whinfield Residents' Association (WRA) organised the art competition. Asda is appealing to shoppers not to take the trolleys out of the Whinfield store car park after trolleys were found dumped in parks and around the estate. Louise Gibson, community champion at Asda. said: "The idea for the competition was suggested by the WRA after discussions at their regular meetings about problems with abandoned shopping trolleys throughout the local community. The posters will be displayed in various locations around the community to encourage customers and residents to return them to the store." Posters shortlisted in the competition will be displayed in store for one week where the public can vote for the winning selection via a ballot paper. Asda says the average cost of replacing a shopping trolley is around 110.
