THE winners of a model making competition have been unveiled.

The Stamford Fairtrade Steering Group organised the competition, which was part of One World Week.

The aim of the week was to highlight how waste affects the planet and the models were on display in the gallery at Stamford Arts Centre last week.

There was also an interactive display and Fairtrade goods on sale.

The model competition, which had 46 entries from school pupils, college students and people interested in art, was judged by local artist Josette Carrol, who exhibited her scupltures made from recycled cardboard, and prizes were handed out by principal of New College Stamford Andrew Patience.

Spokesman for the fairtrade group George Hetherington said it was the most successful One World Week event the group has held in the five years it has been exhibiting at the arts centre.
