MAYOR JOINS PANEL TO JUDGE THE PAINTING COMPETITION

Mayor of Richmond upon Thames, Cllr Ben Khosa, joined representatives from Richmond Borough in Bloom and Achieving for Children to judge the annual children’s floral art competition. Hundreds of paintings were designed by school students from across the borough and were judged in age categories, with three awards in each. Those judged best won a £50 gardening voucher for their school and were also finalists for the overall trophy. All award winners will receive a commemorative Borough in Bloom certificate and surprise pack of art materials at a special presentation party in May.

The judging panel selected as the best design the entry from Mia Feldmar, age 13, at St Catherine’s School, to be used on the poster publicising the 2019 Merit Award gardening competitions held for residents and business of Richmond upon Thames.

 
Speaking after the judging the Mayor said: “I was amazed by the quality of entries submitted for this year’s art competition.
