Thanks so much for your participation!!!
With more than 400 wonderful drawings sent in, the competition has been a real success. Lambeth and Wandsworth children you have been amazing, thank you all very much.
We had a wonderful time reviewing the drawings and have been continually amazed by the talent and creativity of our local children!
The jury met at our Clapham South & Balham Office on the 19th April 2012 and shared their thoughts, smiles, feedback and joy at every single drawing received. A special thank you goes to our jury who have been a great help and really efficient: Lizie Gower, Hazel Hardy, Lee James Pendleton and Alex Sykes.
