Wonderful Willoughby Winners!

 Children from Bourne Elsea Park Church of England Primary Academy were amongst many other artists from this part of Lincolnshire who entered this prestigious and popular competition and we are extremely proud of our successes.  Bronte Wyvill in Year 5 received Highly Commended for her ‘Harvest of the Sea’ and Marcus Spencer-Kidd in Year 1 received 1st prize for his ‘Autumn’ painting. On Friday evening, they joined other winners at the Willoughby Gallery for a celebratory prize giving ceremony and exhibition of all winning pieces.  John Kirkman, a trustee for the Willoughby Trust presented the prizes and certificates before the judges spoke about their thoughts on the amazing talents showcased in the exhibition.  What a pleasure it was to meet the other winners and such an inspirational evening for the pupils to see their work on show in this beautiful gallery.  Who knows, we might have been gazing upon the future Gillian Ayres or David Hockneys!
