Buddy Bench Competition Winner

Back in May, Impact Arts and Bridgewater Housing Association invited Primary School pupils in Erskine to take part in our Buddy Bench competition. Pupils from years 1-7 were set the task of creating a design for the bench based on the themes of Water, Bridge and Community.

The winning design was selected by the Bridgewater Housing Association Board of Trustees and we're delighted that they selected this beautiful entry from Niamh, aged 7!
