If you happen to be in the Crosspool precinct over the next two or three weeks, have a look in the right-hand window of GT News.

You’ll find a display of pictures painted by year six children at Lydgate Infant School.

Although they are all commendable, your choice will be decisive in determining the winner of a competition to find the best. You can record your favourite with the GT News sales staff.

The child with the most votes by the 4 January 2012 will be presented with a £20 voucher.
