Girl guides have been praised by a lions club for their inventive and inspiring posters.

The Cheddar Vale Lions Club sponsored the 1st Cheddar Guides for the Lions International Peace Poster Contest.

The winner, Willow Norman, was presented with a certificate and prize my club president Marion Adcock.

Runners-up Georgia Hemmings and Daisy Thompson were also handed prizes for their hard work.

Willow will now move on to the next round where her poster will be judged by the district governor against groups from across Somerset.

Marion said: “We would like to thank the guides for their participation and to guide leader Bev Davies for her ongoing support of our projects.”

The art contest, which is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, encourages young people to express their visions of peace and community.
