The theme this year was ‘a scene from Tam o’Shanter’ and youngsters from all over the island put their imagination to good use in coming up with a total of 166 weird and wonderful entries.

Club secretary Andrew Martin visited Shiskine Primary School last week to award the winner with her prizes. Receiving a limited edition book and numbered medal, a certificate featuring her painting and the prize money was P5 pupil Heather Beeton who, true to the theme, painted Tam on his horse Meg being chased by a witch. Heather said: ‘I thought my talented friend might win it. I never thought it could be me. I’m very pleased.’
