NEARLY 100 youngsters entered an art competition recently organised by the Pocklington and District Lions.

The paint-happy youngsters from Pocklington Juniors, St Mary’s and St Joseph’s and Lyndhurst were given the chance to draw their own version of the group’s lion mascot, and add what they thought was the best name for him.

The colourful entries were judged by three local artists, Catherine Inglis, Penny De Corte and Hilary Angle, with the winners in the two age groups receiving painting sets and a cuddly toy lion.

Oscar Gee from St Mary’s and St Joseph’s was named the winner of the foundation category, with Jacob Lee of Pocklington Juniors taking the prize in the older category.

Eva Peart, of St Mary’s & St Joseph’s’, chose the name ‘Pocko’ for the mascot lion, which was judged the winner.
