Tatworth youngster’s picture chosen by supermarket to promote Somerset town

Artwork created by a Tatworth Primary School pupil is being printed on thousands of shopping bags.

Corey Mackenzi was voted the winner of a competition organised by Tesco, Chard, which asked people to come up with a logo to show “Why I love Chard’.

Over 300 entries were received and the Year 5 pupil’s winning contribution has been printed on thousands of ‘bags for life’ available from the local store.

Corey won a £50 voucher for himself and £250 for the school which will be spent on art materials. In addition, each child in the school was presented with a free bag.
