Express Yourself Entries

We have been amazed at the high numbers of entries we have received this week. A huge thank you to everyone who has got involved and shared something with us. Truly amazing!

We have five prize vouchers of £10 for the 'Express Yourself' Children's Mental Health Week Competition.

The entrants will be divided into age groups and each given a number.  We will then use a random number generator online to give us the numbers of prizewinners. 

Our Council Digital Team are going to build an online Gallery for us where all the entries can be seen and we will be in touch once that's ready in a couple of weeks' time.
