Archant

The walls of a Littleham laundrette are once again filled with paintings produced by children from a local primary school.

Every year the owner, Jef Pirie, of the Littleham Cross Laundrette, asks a different primary school to create pieces to adorn the walls of his business.

This year, he asked Littleham Primary School and the children from year two gave him colourful paintings of a coral reef.

The students used an underwater theme as they have been learning about sealife through their learning project.

In return, Jef has donated money to the school’s PTFA to show his gratitude to the children.

Jef said: “I’ve had art work from Littleham before and their standard of art work is really high.

“They have particularly brought colour and energy to the place.

“The kids have been bringing in their parents and grandparents to show them what they have done.

“When the holiday makers come they like the pictures very much.”
