Twelve talented children from a school in Welwyn, Hertfordshire, have been given the opportunity to see their original drawings featured in an exclusive calendar.
The pupils from Welwyn St Mary’s Primary School were given the theme of “favourite places in Welwyn” by our Chiltern region and competed with fellow class mates for a place in the school calendar.
The school also received 200 copies of the calendar from Linden Homes to be sold to parents and friends with all proceeds going back to the school.
Clive Anstey, Year 4 teacher at Welwyn St Mary’s, said: “The children really got stuck into their drawings over the half term and it was fantastic to see so many lovely pieces being entered in to the competition. The winners are thrilled and really excited to be featured in the calendar.”
Simon Pendlebury, sales and marketing director at Linden Homes’ Chiltern, added: “We were in a great position to be able to choose from some lovely, creative artwork sent in from the children.
“All of the entries were very colourful and quite impressive so it was a tough job to pick the winners, but we had great fun doing so and think a great calendar has been created for the school to enjoy.”
The benefits of buying new make the choice easy. Here are just a few:
