Winner Flora with Paul Wright from Apuljack.


Schoolchildren in Weare created Christmas cards for a competition this month.

Pupils at Weare Academy First School, in Notting Hill Way, designed cards as part of the contest held in partnership with Apuljack Engineering, based in Rooksbridge.

Paul Wright, director at the engineering business, said: “We were delighted to have 30 designs to choose from.

“All Apuljack staff enjoyed voting for their favourite designs.”

The competition gave the children the chance to have their artwork seen by a lot of people, as the card will be sent to Apuljack’s customers.

The chosen winner was Flora, who was presented with a certificate and a gift voucher by Mr Wright.

Weare First School headteacher Denise Mawdsley said: “This is the third year running the competition and we appreciate the local business link with the school in making a real card for genuine purpose.”
