Elaine Coles, owner of The Country House Gift Company, decided to take the opportunity to encourage young people to get into writing rather than texting.

They were asked to write about what they like about where they live, and were judged on content and handwriting.

The winners were five-year-old Milo Andrews of Congresbury and 10-year-old Abigail Campbell of Axbridge.
