Contest gets to art of the matter

BLYTH’S Keel Row shopping centre is urging youngsters to put it in the picture.

The centre is running an art competition for views of, or inspired by, Blyth.

Children in three age groups – four to six, seven to nine and ten to 11 – are being invited to submit compositions drawn in any medium on A4 paper.

The winners will be given £30 gift vouchers.

Centre boss Callum Reid said: “We thought it would be interesting to see how youngsters view their home town.

“Who knows – we may have the new Picasso living in our midst.”

All entries submitted will be put on show at the centre until Saturday, July 28.

Entries need to be handed in to centre management office by Monday.
