Calling young artists

NINE talented children who entered a picture competition for a horticultural show are being urged to contact the supermarket who organised it.

Selina Wilson, community champion for Tesco, Hartlepool, organised a drawing and painting competition with schools in the town for the Rossmere Allotment Association’s Horticultural Show.

The winners are to be announced at the event, which is being held at the Jutland Road Community Centre, in Jutland Road, Hartlepool, from noon until 4pm, on Saturday.

But Selina contacted the Mail to say that nine budding artists she has shortlisted have not provided a personal telephone number with their works of art and would like parents to get in touch with her.

She said: “The nine children whose contact details I don’t have are all from Year 2 at St Helen’s Primary School, in Durham Street, on the Headland. I’d really appreciate parents to give me a call just to see if it is their child who is one of those shortlisted.”

Selina can be contacted on (07590) 975808.
