Axminster girl’s message of peace

Lottie, 12, is a runner up in the regional finals of the Lions’ poster competition

COLOURFUL posters promoting world peace have gone on show at Axminster Arts Caf�.

They have been produced by local youngsters in a competition organised by the Lions Club.

Members judged 156 entries from six East Devon schools in the latest contest.

The winning local entries went on to the south west area finals where 12-year-old Lottie Rouse, Axminster primary school’s champion, was awarded joint third place.

Now a pupil at Woodroffe School, she has been invited to attend the regional awards ceremony at Torquay in March.

Lottie’s mum Claire works at Axminster Primary School and her dad Tim is a professional photographer.
