Pupils of Littleham Primary were practising their creativity last Thursday as they worked on their entries for the Exe Estuary Art Competition, being run by the Exe Estuary Management Partnership.

The competition, which is open to everybody, is for any form of art work as long as it represents the value and beauty of the Exe, giving the pupils a lot of scope to get drawing, glueing, painting, moulding and any other form of creativity they can think of.

A couple of weeks before, the class had spent a few hours out on the Exe with the estuary officer, Jenny Lockett, learning about the estuary's key features, species and ecology, providing plenty of inspiration for their art work. Jenny, and her colleague Silvia Santoli, joined the group again to explain about the competition and help the group with their art work.

The group also spent time creating flags for the Exe Estuary Festival, which is being held on Saturday, August 8, on the Maer in Exmouth.

The festival, which is free to enter and open to everybody, will celebrate the value of the estuary as well as showcasing the clubs, activities, businesses and community groups which make the Exe the vibrant and diverse place that we all know and love.

The art competition and festival are only possible because of generous sponsorship from Devon Cliffs, Darts Farm, South West Water and the Exmouth Town Management Partnership
