BLOOMIN' GOOD ARTISTS AND POETS

The Adult and Schools Competitions for Art and Poetry have again proved very popular. As an integral part of the 2010 Wimborne in Bloom Campaign the full results are shown below. The thanks of Wimborne in Bloom go not only to the schools for their ongoing support but also to Infinergy Ltd, a Wimborne-based wind farm company, who sponsored the Under 16's Art Competition. Thanks also to Mrs Pam Perry who again kindly sponsored the Poetry Competition. The theme for both competitions this year was "Wimborne's Changing Beauty" and entrants rose to the challenge and highlighted many of the changes that have, are, or will be taking place in our town.

Wimborne in Bloom were pleased to welcome Frances Shearing, an eminent artist and teacher, who undertook the judging of the adult art competition and gave some very encouraging and informative feedback.

The Schools Competition was judged by the Mayor of Wimborne Minster Cllr. Terry Wheeler and the Mayoress, Mrs Pauline Wheeler.
