The new school term got off to an egg-cellent start for one pupil at Chester Le St Church of England Junior School. For the Year five youngster won first prize after she entered a local Easter egg competition.
Ten-year-old Stephanie Murphy, from Hilda Park, won a TV and a chocolate treat after taking part in the competition run by the 0800 Repair Appliance Centre.
The competition asked children from three local schools, Cestria Primary School, Red Rose Primary and Chester Le St Church of England Junior School to put their creative talents to the test and paint their favourite characters and more than 300 pupils entered.
Stephanie was presented with the star prize by 0800 Repair shop manager Kevin Gray. Kevin said:
“The entries were so good that we decided to display the best ones in the shop window over Easter. The children were thrilled to see their creations on display - they put a great amount of time and effort into creating the eggs and it was a really difficult task deciding on the winner.
A thrilled Stephanie whose winning entry was a called ‘Tawn Egg Owl’ said: “I was so excited when I heard that my egg had won and I couldn’t believe I had won a brand new TV. I decided to create an owl as I thought that owls are egg-shaped and it worked really well.
Kevin added: “We were delighted with the response from the Easter Egg Competition. As a Chester Le St based company, we are always looking for new ways to engage and work with local schools and the community”.
