Youngsters at a primary school have been taking part in a competition to design a new logo for a Dales business.

All 60 children from Rowsley Primary School entered drawings into an art competition to design a new packaging logo on the theme ‘take nature home’ , for a Rowsley free-range business run by Gaynor and Eric Lewis.

Artists Jill Wilson from Gallerytop, and Natasha Astara from Derbyshire Open Arts joined Sally Raynor in her shop, The Peak Barn, in Rowsley.

Natasha said: “The work has so much imagination and energy, there certainly are a lot of budding artists in Rowsley.”

Tanisha McGuiness was voted the overall winner by the panel for her pretty row of flowers, winning a family ticket to Cineworld.

The two runners up, Libby Brown and Sarah Nicholls, were given vouchers for art materials from The Works.

The event organiser, Gaynor, was so impressed with the overall standard of the children’s work that she gave the head teacher, Rosey Andrassy, a voucher for every child in the school to pick up a box of fresh free-range eggs from the farm as a ‘thank you’ for taking part.
