School's paintings are blooming good











An obvious headline, but pretty usual for local media. Just in case they they haven't been featured in Budleigh newspapers I thought I would show these pictures by children from St Peter's Church of England Primary School and the Carousel Playgroup.

They were just some of the 263 entries submitted by Budleigh Salterton young people for the 'South West in Bloom' 2010 Schools Painting Competition and were on display in the Public Hall next to the town's Art Club Spring Bank Holiday exhibition on 31 May.

The theme was 'Dig it, Grow it, Cook it & Eat it.' The entries were grouped in two categories: up to 6 years and 7-11 years.

One selected picture from each group will be sent on to join others from across the region. The 'South West in Bloom' organisation will pick out some overall favourites to be shown at a presentation event held in Bath on Thursday 16 September.

Paintings from this children's painting competition will most likely be used by Viridor to produce their 2011 calendar based on the school term year.




















Reuben Smith was the overall winner in the up to 6 years age group.






















Anya Kilburn-Thompson gained 1st prize in the 7-11 years group
