Colouring contest winners

BUDDING artist Ellie Worgan fought off stiff competition to win a colouring contest organised by the Portishead Railway Group.

At Portishead Flower Show in July, youngsters were invited to colour a picture which had been created using an original photograph of a train at Portishead station.

Ellie, aged eight from Clevedon was awarded two tickets for a ride on the Avon Valley Railway for her efforts in the eight to 11 category.

Four-year-old Annie Gradwell came first in the four to seven-year-olds’ contest.

Annie who lives in Hong Kong, says she will use the tickets awarded to her when she returns to Portishead to visit her grandmother again later in the year.
