ARTISTS AND POETS BLOOM AGAIN!

The Adult and Schools Competitions for Art and Poetry have again proved very popular. As an integral part of the 2011 Wimborne in Bloom Campaign the full results are shown below. Wimborne in Bloom thanks the participating schools for their ongoing support and Mrs Pam Perry who again kindly sponsored the Poetry Competition. The theme for both competitions this year was "Colours of Nature" and entrants took the opportunity to display many different facets of the colours that surround us.

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.
