Narberth community primary school pupils have swept the board in a Farmers' Union of Wales competition based on farming which was held for schools in Pembrokeshire.

The winners of the three categories and their school will be presented with their prizes at noon on Wednesday August 18 in the FUW marquee (stand number B36) during the Pembrokeshire County Show.

The competition, launched in June when the FUW's Pembrokeshire county executive officer Rebecca Williams wrote to all schools in the county, attracted 277 entries and was sponsored by Carmarthen & Pumsaint Farmers' Ltd, J E Lawrence & Son Ltd and the county's FUW 200+ Club.

Category 1 was won by Gwenllian Evans for her hand drawing of a farm scene; Category 2 was won by Anna Phillips and Sali Lewis who submitted a joint entry of a model of a sheep and the winner of Category 3 was Finley Griffiths for his poem entitled "The Farm".

FUW county chairman Dai Miles, who was also one of the judges, said: "All the judges were very impressed with the high standard of entries in all three categories of the competition and we had a very difficult task in choosing the winners."

The winner of each category will receive a £10 gift voucher and a goody bag for themselves, with a cheque for £30, together with £40 worth of Carmarthen & Pumsaint Farmers' Ltd vouchers, being presented to their school for use in developing their school garden.

The head teacher of Narberth CP School Edna Davies, who will be attending the presentation of prizes, was thrilled with her winning pupils and all of those who had taken part. She said the competition had fitted in well with a project which the school had been undertaking about farming during the last school year.

The winning entries and all of the other entries will be on display at the FUW marquee throughout the show.
