Little artists from Ickleford Pre-School made Mother’s Day extra special after winning prizes for their mums.
Children from the school, which is based at Ickleford Village Hall, were asked to draw pictures of their mums for a competition organised by V R Jennings Funeral Service in Ickleford, Hitchin.
Funeral arranger Susannah Fruen from the Arlesey Road funeral home organised the Mother’s Day competition for youngsters from both the playgroup and the nursery. The winner in each age group won a Solid Silver Heart Fingerprint necklace, while the two runners up in each category won potted flower arrangements for their mums.
India Robinson won first prize while Emma Woollard and Oscar Martin won runner-up prizes. Isla Hammond won from the playgroup, while Alexandra Hogan and Remy Sargent won runner-up prizes.
Susannah said: “Over the years V R Jennings has supported the pre-school in many ways, including donations of hampers, art materials and raffle prizes. They have always been very grateful and we decided this time to do something different by helping the children do something for their mums.”
