08.08.13 Play Canvas Competition Winners

This summer, instead of the usual banner competition, each playscheme was given a blank canvas to fill, along with the theme, ' Where We Play'.
All of the completed entries were then put on display in the Birkenhead Park visitors' pavillion to be viewed during Playday.
The competition was judged by the Mayor of Wirral, Councillor Dave Mitchell and we are pleased to announce the winning canvases are...

1st place - WPC Special Needs
2nd place - Bebington High
3rd place - Overchurch

Thank you to all the schemes for participating, there were lots of great entries but unfortunately only three could win.
