Top designs at pool’s advent contest

AN ADVENT calendar designed by local children has gone on display at Nidderdale Pool and Leisure Centre.

The calendar is the result of the fourth annual competition run by the centre, which invited school children from the district to submit Christmas themed pictures, with the best 24 chosen for the calendar.

This year’s competition saw over 60 entries - and prizes donated by Zoggs, given to the winners in three different age groups.

Connie Milburn was selected as the winner of the under-six category, Hattie Johnson in the six to eight age group and Jess Brockhill in the over-nines category, who was also named as the overall winner.

The Nidderdale Pool and Leisure Centre Advent Calendar 2011 will be on display in the facility until the new year.
