Children’s Painting Competition

competition_winnersOn Monday 14th July, nine children from local Primary Schools were invited to the Town Hall in Colwyn Bay to be presented with prizes for the Colwyn in Bloom Schools Painting Competition 2014, which had the theme of ‘Sunflowers’ to mark the 50th anniversary of the RHS.

The competition was open to children aged from 4 to 7 who attend schools in the Bay of Colwyn Town Council area.

The Town Mayor, Cllr Val Smith and Mrs Ingrid Lewis, Chairman of the Colwyn in Bloom Group, presented the children with certificates and prizes for being placed in the top three for each of the age categories. The wining paintings will remain on display in the Town Hall until September, to allow any family members or friends of the winners to view them.

Mrs Ingrid Lewis said “We were delighted with the quality of entries received from our local schools and were very proud to be able to display the winning paintings in the Town Hall when the judge from Wales in Bloom visited the town last week. Colwyn Bay is proud to have been a winner in the large town category of the Wales in Bloom competition for the past twelve years and school involvement in the annual gardening awards scheme and painting competition is a very important part of our campaign. We would like to thank Penmaenrhos Infants, Rydal Penrhos, and St Joseph’s for encouraging their pupils to enter the painting competition this year and look forward to showing the winning paintings to the Britain in Bloom judges when they visit the town next week.”
