PUPILS have sung the praises of their village, with a picture competition celebrating the best of Tewin.

Youngsters from Tewin Cowper C of E Primary School took part in the contest, What Tewin Means To Me, to showcase the best things about village life.

Tyler Owens, 10, scooped the top prize, while nine-year-old Max Seewraj and Hannah Stapleton, aged eight, came second and third respectively.

Tyler said: “Tewin is such a friendly village, everyone knows each other.”

Max added: “I feel safe in Tewin. I can ride my bike around the village and visit all my friends.”

Tyler’s work is now on display at the Carrington Grange development sales information centre in Upper Green Road.

The competition was organised by developer Taylor Wimpey.
