Budleigh youngsters who entered a contest to show why books make great gifts are sure to be happy with their prize – a book voucher!
Children aged five to 11 entered the competition, organised by Budleigh Salterton Library, which asked them to write a short piece about why a book makes a great Christmas present.
The winning entries were chosen by Fay Nelmes, who presented the prizes along with town mayor Steve Hall.
The two winners, five-year-old Benjamin Smith and nine-year-old Alexander James, each received a £10 voucher from Best Books.
The runners-up – Caitlin Falloon, Nathaniel James, Ayla Cheesman, Annabelle Moger-Taylor, Stevie Mears and Charlie Prew – received prizes donated by The Rowan Tree, The Card Shop Too and Bargain Arts.
