Two pupils from local primary schools have scooped the top prizes in the Council’s Easter colouring competition.
Rowan Moore from St Nicolas Church of England Academy, Nuneaton and Imogen Bray from St Francis Catholic Primary School in Bedworth both produced stunning Easter designs and won iPad minis in the competition organised by the Council’s Marketing Team.
Rowan was unaware of her magnificent win for some days after the judges made their decision as there was no contact information with her entry. Eventually, Council staff managed to track her down using social media and she was delighted with the news.
"Rowan is over the moon at winning the iPad. She regularly enters competitions and was pleased with the cream egg she received for entering, but to win one of the top prizes feels like such an achievement!"
Said her mum, Kerry.
The Council received over 400 entries for the competition, all submitted in person by the artists at the recent town centre Easter Eggstravaganza events in Nuneaton and Bedworth. Each entrant received a chocolate egg.
Other winners include Poppy Magee and Emily Saunders, who both won Odeon Cinema vouchers, Izobel Breakwell, Sabrina Fu, Zahra Patel, Chelsey Tedds, Stefarm Lupu, Andy Huang, Hasan Bollkar and Poppy Morgan, who all won fabulous chocolate Easter treats.
"It’s wonderful that so many local children came along with their families to enjoy the town centre entertainment over the Easter weekend and take part in our competition. The standard was very high and the judges had a hard task choosing the winners."
Alan Franks, the Council’s Managing Director
The Council’s popular ‘Easter Eggstravaganza’ events took place on Good Friday and Easter Saturday where the town centre crowds of were joined by a host of seasonal visitors including Eggs on Legs, Fussy Old Hens and Major Hopalot, the Space Bunny.
