CHILDREN have received prizes for festive artwork which was on display at the Co-op after the store ran a Christmas colouring competition for the youngsters at Enchanted Nursery and the pupils of St Lawrence Primary School, Alton.

It was organised by the manager, Carina Houghton, and she and the staff judged the entries, which were done at the nursery and at the school.

Four winners, two from Enchanted Nursery and two from St Lawrence School each received a Co-op voucher and a selection pack on December 21.

The eight runners-up were also given selection packs and the prizes were presented by staff members Jane Dickerson and Loran Hatcher, who wore fancy dress.

Recipients were: (Enchanted Nursery) Grace Bizzell-Hamiliton, Beua Hocking, Way Mexan; Khloe Barnes, Tianna Flanagan and Gracie Stevenson and (St Lawrence Primary) Rachael Bull, Kavan Burke, Freya Parratt, Poppy Reeves and Skye Douglas.
