Highbridge pupil wins In Bloom design
A CREATIVE youngster has seen his winning painting design being made into a badge bed for the Jubilee Gardens in Highbridge.
Ewan Lyes won first prize at the Highbridge in Bloom competition in October and recently saw his painting come to life when it was planted by Sedgemoor District Council gardeners.
The competition involved children from Churchfields Church School creating what they felt would be best suited as a floral design in the town. There were also runner-up spots for others with creative designs; second prize was won by Aleisha Summers while third prize went to Tali Knight.
Fourth prize was awarded to Edward Aylford whose painting best captured Highbridge in every sense but unfortunately, because of the size of the badge bed, it was too detailed to be transferred into flowers.
Highbridge in Bloom secretary Pam Lyes said: “Everybody who voted picked up on its colourfulness. The badges are so small you can’t fit a lot of detail in there
