Senior staff at Hinchingbrooke Hospital presented prizes to the winners of Sawtry Village Academy’s art competition in the garden restaurant at the hospital.

The theme of the competition was food, and the restaurant exhibited the artwork throughout April with patients, staff and visitors voting for their favourite piece.

The competition was sponsored by the National Association of Decorative and Fine Art Societies (NADFAS) and the prizes were awarded to the winners of the various categories by Jill Challinor (NADFAS) and Caroline Walker, deputy chief executive of the North West Anglia NHS Foundation Trust.

The winners were: Jonathan Alderman (painting), Jasmine Wade (drawing) and Matilda McEwan (photography). Matilda also the overall winner of the competition.

Kevin Terry, head of art and photography at the school, said: “In the present school climate where there is a lot of pressure on creative subjects it was very pleasing to see such an overwhelming interest from students.

“The quality of artwork was outstanding and we must say thank you to Hinchingbrooke’s garden restaurant staff for hosting the exhibition and for NADFAS for their financial support.”
