SEASIDE boards have been created by youngsters from Bridlington to encourage residents to take pride in the town.

The boards, depicting fish, seabird and beach designs, have gone on display along the town’s north and south promenade and at Sewerby Hall and Gardens.

The boards were created as part of an East Riding of Yorkshire Council led Art on the Prom project which aims to brighten up towns and villages, encouraging residents to take pride in their area while appreciating the talents of local youngsters.

The final designs, painted by youngsters aged from five to 16 years, were submitted to the project as part of an art competition which attracted more than 200 entries.

Vicky Jude, play projects officer, said: “We would like to thank everyone who submitted a competition entry and really enjoyed looking through the designs.

“Choosing a small number to replicate onto large wooden boards was truly a difficult task. We would also like to thank West Building Supplies Limited for donating the timber and appreciate their support in making Art on the Prom a success.”

The sport, play and arts team is now looking for additional areas that need brightening up and also organisations that would be willing to sponsor the project. For more information call Vicky on 07770 881178.
