Youngsters used natural materials to make art for an exhibition on sustainability.

Stamford Arts Centre hosted the One World Week display last week and more than 2,000 visitors came through the doors.

Stamford school pupils made a range of creative models for the competition, and winners were picked in a number of categories.

The pupils’ creations were complemented by models made from waste materials collected in different areas.

These were mostly made by students from the Thomas Bewick School, for autistic students, in Newcastle.

The week was organised by the Stamford Fairtrade Town Steering Group. Member George Hetherington said: “One World Week was hard work for the members of the group, who all felt exhilarated by the success of the event and the many supportive comments of the visitors.”

Among the winners were St Gilbert’s Primary School pupil Jack Howson, who took first place in the machine category for his model.

Eloise Ince, also a pupil at St Gilbert’s, won second prize in the animal category for an excellent collage of a hedgehog made of leaves and twigs.

Her sister Isabelle took second prize in the scene category.

And the winner of the people’s choice award was Gavin Tutcher for his model of the globe in safe hands.
