CREATIVE schoolchildren have gone back to the drawing board to help a village church raise funds.

Youngsters from primary schools in Rickling, Newport and Clavering designed posters to promote a sponsored teddy bear parachute jump taking place on June 6.

Vicar of St Mary's Church in Newport, Revd Dr Barbara Sherlock, said: "We had a fantastic response from the children and about 200 entries. They were all really creative with lots of different colours, designs and materials used.

"It was very difficult to pick a winner, but eventually we decided on posters by Phoebe Snow from Newport and Holly Howard form Rickling. The runners-up were Amelia Donker from Clavering and Sam Rolfe from Newport."

The winning posters will be displayed around the villages to promote the event. All the entries will be on display in the village hall on the day.

The teddy bear parachute jump will take place at Newport Church tower. For more details and to enter the competition visit www.achurchnearyou.com/st-marys-newport.
