Young artists celebrate winning art contest

Young artists took tea with the mayor as they celebrated winning an art competition to decorate a Peterborough City Council building.

The four winning pictures will now be placed on the walls of the Customer Service Centre, after being chosen from more than 100 entries by council members and staff from Serco Business.

The winners and their family enjoyed drinks with Peterborough Mayor for 2019/20 Cllr Gul Nawaz, enjoying a fascinating talk on the history of the Mayor’s Parlour.

The theme for the competition was Peterborough Landmarks, with entrants choosing The Cathedral, Flag Fen, The Lido and the Guild Hall as subjects.

The winner in the senior age group was Adam Golding with his depiction of Cathedral Square. The other winners, in the junior category, were Noah Mclean, Renee Roberts and Pia Chitali.

Each winner will receive shopping vouchers, and they and some of the runners-up will also see their work framed and displayed in the centre and Sand Martin House, as well as being displayed on digital screens in the buildings.

Serco Business senior receptionist Angela Williamson, who organised the competition, said: “We were very pleased with the standard of entries and it was a tough job to whittle them down.

“We will now frame the pictures and they will be on display in the next couple of weeks.”
