TWO young artists have been dazzling judges with their creative skills.

Children at Pendragon Primary School, in Papworth Everard, were asked to put pen and paint to paper to show their vision of how the village's new bypass would improve the area. The winner in the older age group was nine-year-old Jade Carter, while the younger age group category was won by five-year-old Tom King.

Runners-up were Matthew Wadkin, Murray Lewis, Raina Victor and William Hooper.

All the finalists received a special art pack.

QUIETER LIFE: Jade Carter’s entry won the older age group category.

The winning pictures were judged by the county council's project team and Cambridgeshire county councillor John Reynolds, cabinet member for environment and community services.

The youngsters received their prizes from the county council and Spike, the county council's road safety hedgehog.

The art competition was organised by the project team as part of a programme of activities and talks about the bypass with the children.

INFORMATION: It is predicted the £8.7million bypass will take 60 per cent of vehicles away from the centre of the village. It is due to open early next year.

PRIZE GUY: Young Tom King’s winning work of art.
