Nicer to Nature Comp 2015

AAW ran a “Nicer to Nature” Art competition in conjunction with local primary schools just before Easter. The intent of this was to get children thinking about their environment and all within it, and how they could make it a better place.

We had a great response and loads of fantastic drawings were submitted. Its great to see such active imaginations out there and such an interest in our environment!!!
