Children’s Art Competition– Results and Pictures



Ynysfach school children recently took part in a St. David’s Day Art Competition sponsored by Resolven Community Council.  The winning pictures were chosen by local artist Garfield Evans –what a task for him!   As you can see from the above drawing, the  standard was excellent  and a good crowd turned up at Resolven Community Centre on Saturday the 7th of April to see the prizes handed over by Council Chairman Trefor Jones, aided by Clerk to the Council Cheryl Payne.

Nathan Williams- Reception ( 3rd prize winner)

There were 3 classes involved this time—Reception Class, Year 3 and Year 6.

First prize was a voucher for £20. Second prize was £10 and 3rd prize was £5.

When the first young winner was handed his envelope with money inside he raised a laugh in the hall by handing it straight back to Trefor!  Tempted though he might have been, Trefor didn’t keep it and assured the young man that the money was all his. Another young artist thought she was in the hall to receive a raffle prize and was a little bemused as she didn’t recall buying a ticket!  But she and all the others who took part deserve great praise for their art work.
