WESTHOUGHTON Library has been brightened up by the best exhibits from a school art competition.

Pupils from primary schools across Westhoughton in Years Three and Five entered the competition, which was organised by Westhoughton Rotary Club.

The town’s mayor Cllr Christopher Peacock and club president Arthur Price awarded the cash prizes to the winners and their schools. Eatock Primary School and Kian Patel won the Year Three category, which had a Lowry theme, while St Thomas’ CE Primary School won the Year Five Mondrian-themed competition, with Chloe Battersby the winning artist.

Mr Price said: “Westhoughton Library is a great centre for the town and ideal both for the exhibition and the prize presentation.”
