Winners of Jude’s Ice-cream Watercress Way poster competition


In March, The Watercress Way was delighted to announce a competition sponsored by Jude’s Ice Cream for primary school children to design a poster about The Watercress Way.

Local schools in Kings Worthy, South Wonston, Micheldever, Itchen Abbas, Sun Hill and Princes Mead were invited to participate.

Some families entered into the spirit by having all of their children design a poster to get people to use The Watercress Way. It was so hard to judge that Jude’s decided on the whole family winning a month supply ice cream via Sainsbury’s.

The winning entries were:

The Owens – Eliza (4), Sydney (6) and Maddison (8)

The Barretts  – Heidi (4) and Flossy(7)

The judges at Jude’s ice cream particularly commended Flossy’s felt tip poster.
