A picture of Paddington and a Spikey Surprise story of teddy bears meeting hungry hedgehogs were among the prize-winning entries to the Wimborne Bear Painting and Story Competition organised by Wimborne Model Town and Wimborne Town Council.
Prize-winners received their awards and a souvenir teddy at the volunteer-run attraction from Wimborne’s mayor, Kelly Webb. The occasion, supported by local businesses Renoufs Restaurant, Present Company and Gullivers Bookshop, saw entries from many local children and adults who had attended the charity’s Wimborne Bear Day earlier in the month.
Greg Hoar, WMT marketing services spokesman said: “We were delighted to have been the inspiration for so many quality entries from such a broad age range.”
