The Lions Clubs of District 105SW of which Cheddar Vale is part, invite pupils from local schools to take part in a Peace Poster Competition. The winning entry from our District, which covers Devon, Cornwall and Somerset, goes forward to the national judging and from there is entered into the International Competition, which is judged in America. 

Lions International Peace Poster Contest 2017/18 - THE FUTURE OF PEACE”

Cheddar Vale Lions Club once again generously sponsored 2 Peace Poster Contests.  The posters are judged on their originality, artistic merit and portrayal of the theme, which for this 30th Anniversary Year of the Contest was “The Future of Peace”.

Our congratulations go to Matilda whose poster was chosen asthis year’s winner at Hugh Sexey C of E Middle School (see picture below left).  Well done also to the two runners up, Suzanna and Bethand to all of the 159 pupils in Year 8 who took part in this year’s contest.  Lion President Marion will present the winning students with their certificates and prizes during a KS3 Assembly at the school in the New Year. 

Axbridge First Guides were unable to take part in the contest this year, but we were delighted to welcome back Cheddar First Guides to the contest, under the leadership of Bev Davies MJF. Thirteen of the guides took part and our congratulations go to their winner, Willow, (see picture below right) and runners-up Georgia and Daisy. Their prizes will be presented on Monday 4th December.  

The winners and runners-up of the District Contest will be announced at District Convention … so we will keep our fingers crossed for Matilda and Willow!

Thank you to all those who took part in the competition again this year,  and in particular staff at Hugh Sexey School and Guide Leaders  for encouraging their 11-13 year olds to take part.
