Well done competition winners! And a visit from a Children's Book Illustrator ...

I've realised I've not updated the blog for a while, there just didn't seem to be a spare minute! But here is the first of a couple of belated posts about some of our recent events.
A little while ago with the support and help of local school's magazine 'Hey!' we ran a children's art competition to illustrate a dream holiday!
We got some fantastically imaginative entries and the children all worked really hard, so a big thank you to everyone who entered!
The winners and runners up pictured here were presented with their prizes by Children's Book Illustrator Paula Bowles who was a fantastic sport for taking part and made a special trip out for the prizegiving. (Paula's the one on the right of the picture...)
She presented the Winners with signed copies of her 'Time for bed Tiger!' book and all the children received art sets as well to continue their creative endeavours!
We framed the winners lovely artwork and mounted the runners up's, they look great don't they! So well done everyone and keep up the good work!
Paula is a member of SWIllustrators and you can check out her fantastic illustrations here at her blog and here at
Thanks again Paula, it was lovely to see you in Midsomer Norton!
