Paintings by talented youngsters will appear on a banner to be put up outside the Commemoration Hall in Huntingdon later this year.

Children from Thongsley Primary and Nursery School in Buttsgrove Way, Huntingdon, were given a tour of Commemoration Hall and asked to compose paintings for the banner.

Lydia Eldridge, artist director of Commem-oration Hall, said: "Lots of people just walk past the Commemoration Hall and don't even notice it, which is such a shame. By asking children to design paintings that will appear on banners we hope their creative boldness and amazing use of colour will draw people in."

The four winning designs were painted by six-year-old Viktoria Dremaine and ten-year-old Chelsea Marriott and feature a paint palette and a cello. The paintings will appear on two banners that are to be placed outside the Commemoration Hall at the end of the year when it turns into an art centre.
