CHILDREN at a local primary school have been designing posters to promote their community – and they were judged by three local councillors.

The pupils at Sacred Heart Catholic School in Goldthorpe wanted to support the local community in a number of ways.

From encouraging dog walkers to be more responsible to making the area a cleaner and better place to live, they designed a series of posters to promote their work.

Local councillors Martin Morrell, Sue Bellamy and Wendy Cain judged the work at an event recently.

Coun Bellamy said: “Sacred Heart want the best for local children, families and the community.

“They launched a poster competition to further encourage children to support the presentation of our local community.

“The children have designed an assortment of posters to support better parking practice and encourage dog owners to be more responsible.

“The selected winners of the competition will have their posters transformed into banners to be hung outside of the school gates.

“The children have had a great time designing the posters and can’t wait to see the winners displayed.”
