Creative youngsters who entered the 10th Rotary Club of Nantwich Primary Schools Art and Handwriting Competition were honoured at a prize-giving ceremony.

The winners and runners-up were presented with prizes by Laura Smith MP and Cheshire East Mayor Cllr Arthur Moran presented prizes at the Nantwich Museum.

Nine local primary schools submitted almost 800 entries competing for total prize money of £600.

The theme for the competition was “My Favourite Place”, which was interpreted in many different and creative ways by the children.

The judges were local artist and architect Martin Greenwood and calligraphy expert Frances Passmore, who had the tough challenge of choosing the winners.
