The Mercury and Weston Chamber of Commerce launched a poster competition two weeks ago, to give children the chance to win book tokens.

It was organised as part of the Cleaner Coastlines campaign to achieve plastic-free coastline status for Weston.

A judging team, which included mayor Mike Lyall, Chris Meyer from Daly Podiatry, who has provided £250 in book vouchers and Darren John from Suez, which is paying for the posters, met on Monday.

Winning designs were submitted by Stephanie Mae Hunt, Thomas Kelly, and Jack Johnson from Hans Price Academy.

The judges received more than 100 posters, and had trouble whittling them down, but chose 11 which feature on the Cleaner Coastlines Facebook page.
