Cheshire's best young artists crowned at Mid Cheshire College
Congratulations to Milo Forster of Kelsall Primary School!
Two budding young artists are celebrating after battling it out with more than 300 pupils from schools across Cheshire to be named the area’s best young artists. Brigid Keighran, a Year 9 student from St Nicholas Catholic High School and Milo Forster Year 5 student from Kelsall Primary School, were crowned the overall winners of the dot-art Schools competition at a special prize-giving ceremony at Mid Cheshire College on Wednesday 7th June.
The runners up in the secondary category were Abbie, Holly, Jen, Eve and Maks from the Bishops Bluecoat CofE High School for their group sculpture of a Chinese Dragon; and Hannah Britton of Bridgewater High School for her detailed mixed media Harry Potter artwork. The primary category runners up were Alex Harrison of Green Lane Special School for a mixed media work titled Alex and Louis Cahill of Delamere Primary School for his charcoal drawing of a Leopard. The two runners up in both categories were also presented with prizes including art materials and tickets to Tate Liverpool's summer exhibition.
Brigid's winning piece titled Ganesha, an elephant created with plaster and paint; and Milo’s pen and ink drawing of a Barn Owl both feature alongside the other shortlisted artworks, in the first Cheshire exhibition in the dot-art Schools competition’s history. This free exhibition is at Mid Cheshire College, Creative Arts & Media Building, Hartford campus, is open to the public between 10.30am until 4.30pm from Thursday 8th June to Saturday 17th June (closed on Sunday 11th June).
dot-art Schools is already a well-established fixture in the academic calendar for many Merseyside schools; since its inception almost 4000 students from over 200 schools have taken part. This is the fifth year it will take place in the Liverpool City Region and due to its success and a new partnership with Liverpool John Moores University, a pilot scheme covering Cheshire West & Chester, Cheshire East and Warrington was launched this year.
Entry for next year’s dot-art Schools competition opens in September but schools that register before the end of term will receive a discounted rate. For more information and to enter, visit http://schools.dot-art.com or contact Carolyn Murray on firstname.lastname@example.org.

New Entry on the Business PageStreet Farm Dairy, Tarvin - Fresh Raw Milk (unpasteurised)
They have proudly milked a herd of pedigree Holstein cows and purebred Jerseys at Street Farm for the past 32 years. Based at the foot of Kelsall Hill, on the A54 in the heart of the beautiful Cheshire Countryside, surrounded by the villages of Tarvin, Ashton and Kelsall.
Fresh from the cow the milk is cooled and sold through a vending machine called the “Milkbot”. This keeps the milk cool and customers can dispense the amount they want into bottles provided. Fresh Raw Milk (unpasteurised) has a rich, full bodied, clean taste, full of flavour, full of natural goodness, nothing added and nothing taken out, just as nature intended, the nearest thing to a complete food.
