YOUNGSTERS got the chance to see their artwork displayed at a railway station after winning a cross-school competition.

Avon and Somerset Probation Trust has been running a children’s art project, asking pupils from two schools to depict offenders undertaking community payback work.

A winner was chosen from Worle Community School and Milton Park Primary School from a total of 60 entries.

Their pictures were put up in Milton Railway Station on Monday.

Children taking part also learned about community payback projects as well as the importance of trains and keeping community spaces like railway stations clean.

The scheme was run in partnership with Severnside Community Rail Partnership.

Jeremy Britton, manager for Community Payback at the trust, said: “I am genuinely proud of the principles of this partnership which involves offenders paying back by improving local railway stations.

“Taking a pride in our communities is an old fashioned principle that must have a place in modern times.”
