Calling Sopwell kids for our painting competition

Drawing & Painting competition!As part of the celebrations for the launch of the Sopwell Memories project and the 10th anniversary of the Sopwell Residents Association on Saturday, 18th May, we are delighted to announce a painting competition for children living in Sopwell.

The theme of the competition is very wide – anything to do with the history or a landmark in Sopwell.

To give you an idea, it could be something to do with the old Nunnery, or the Holy Well, or a painting of the river, an ancient tree, a famous Sopwell person, your street... You choose! And if your parents have a copy of our book "Sopwell: a history and collection of memories", this will give you lots of interesting ideas.
