Every child loves an opportunity to dig out their paints and felt-tip pens to get creative – and a recent competition gave Weston youngsters the chance to do exactly that.

Weston Rotary Club invited pupils from 23 different primary schools to take part in an art competition, with entries later displayed at The Campus in Locking Castle.

Competition judges said they were impressed by the range and quality of work submitted.

A club spokesman said: “The range of subjects demonstrated the abilities of these budding artists, whose ages ranged from five to 10 years.

“Prizes were awarded to the winners and runners-up in each age group with the prize for the overall winner going to Zac Cunningham of St Mark’s Primary School.

“Zac’s painting will now join those of previous winners that adorn the corridors at the event’s sponsors, Weston fuel suppliers BWOC Limited.”
