A five-year-old girl from Letchworth has bagged first place in a competition with her artistic design of Norton Common.
Hertfordshire County Council challenged school children to create artwork illustrating why the district is such a great place to be outdoors.
Megan Govey, who attends Northfields Infants, was delighted to finish first in the three to six years category of the competition. Her prize was awarded at the County Show in Redbourn at the weekend.
Amy Walker came to within a whisker of the same prize in the 10 to 11-year-old category, with the Peartree Spring Junior pupil finishing second.
Megan’s mum, Helen Govey, said: “In Hertfordshire it’s never far to get to somewhere pretty like the bluebell field in Norton Common, and because it’s not very hilly it’s easy for Megan’s little legs.”
