MOTORISTS during the daily commute have had journeys brightened a little by the colourful creations done by pupils.

Children at the Playpals after-school club have painted unwanted plastic bottles to make artistic floral arrangements which currently hang outside the front of the school.

Banwell Primary School has run Playpals since January and pupils have also baked biscuits and been creative with paper mache in recent weeks.
