Budding Artists Receive Prizes
Pupils from eleven schools in the Gosport area threw themselves into a colouring competition that was run by the Gosport Business Centre earlier this year. Andrew Weston, centre manager at the Basepoint operated business centre, and his assistant manager, Kerry Loughrey, were inundated with hundreds of entries and it took a long time for them to decide on a winner.The colouring competition invited children to draw pictures of the sunflowers that had been grown by their schools throughout the summer, as part of Basepoint’s sunflower competition. The child whose picture was judged to be the best would win an art case from the Gosport Business Centre. Andrew and Kerry were very impressed with the quality of the entries but two stood out so much that it was decided that they were both winners. Elena Kenney and Oliver Doust; both students at Crofton Hammond Junior School, cleverly used beads and glitter to turn their paper into three dimensional works of art so they were both presented with an artist set to help them continue with their creative streaks.
