Talented youngsters shine at ‘best ever’ Whittlesey Festival Schools Art competition

TALENTED young artists have been rewarded for their efforts in what has been described as the best ever Whittlesey Festival Schools Art competition.

A superb display of arts and crafts were exhibited at the Whittlesey Christian Church in Broad Street on the day of the town’s festival.

Children from Whittlesey primary schools New Road and Alderman Jacobs and Sir Harry Smith Community College were joined by youngsters at Coates Primary School in taking part in the competition.

Prizes were awarded by the Mayor of Whittlesey, Councillor Kay Mayor, and competition organiser Marija Lysak said “the standard of work was extremely high and the best we’ve ever had.

“We consider everyone who took part to be a winner and we look forward to even greater things next year.”
