Ormskirk Advertiser - - Trains Disrupted By Strikes -

AYOUNG school girl’s pic­ture show­ing why she loves Burscough is to be seen by thou­sands of shop­pers af­ter she won a shop­ping bag de­sign com­pe­ti­tion run by the vil­lage’s Tesco store.

Poppy Poole, 10, of Lords­gate Town­ship C.E. Pri­mary School in Lords­gate Drive, also won £500 for her school and a £25 Tesco gift card for her­self, to spend at the Tesco Burscough Bridge store.

Her winning de­sign fea­tured St John the Bap­tist Church, crops grow­ing in the nearby fields, the Leeds and Liver­pool Canal and Burscough Bridge.

And the de­sign has been trans­ferred onto thou­sands of lim­ited edi­tion hes­sian bags which are be­ing given away free in the Tesco store

A hes­sian bag with Poppy’s winning de­sign was pre­sented to her by Tesco Burscough Bridge store man­ager Mark Rogers dur­ing assem­bly at the school.

The com­pe­ti­tion was or­gan­ised by Tesco as part of its com­mit­ment to en­cour­age com­mu­nity in­volve­ment.

Mark Rogers said: “Whilst we are ded­i­cated and fo­cused on serv­ing our cus­tomers and en­hanc­ing their shop­ping ex­pe­ri­ence in our store, we are also keen to en­gage with and help to sup­port our lo­cal com­mu­nity.

“The school com­pe­ti­tion was very pop­u­lar and we had some great en­tries, but Poppy’s pic­ture cap­tured per­fectly what she likes most about liv­ing here.”

Chris Hack­ett, head­teacher at Lords­gate Town­ship C.E. Pri­mary School, said: “The chil­dren en­joyed en­ter­ing the com­pe­ti­tion and we are very proud of Poppy for winning.

“We would like to thank Tesco for invit­ing us to en­ter and for the won­der­ful prize.

“Ev­ery­one loves the bags and staff, par­ents and pupils are look­ing for­ward to us­ing them.”
