A HUNSTANTON pupil has bagged a top prize after winning a design competition.

Nine-year-old Stephen Larman, a pupil at the town’s primary school, designed a picture of fruit and vegetables in a competition organised by Hunstanton’s Southend Road Tesco store.

His winning design has been transferred on to limited edition hessian bags to be given away in store to shoppers.

Stephen also won a Junior Chefs Academy workshop for his class to promote healthy eating and a £25 gift card for himself.

Staff at the store invited pupils to create a picture to promote healthy eating. Stephen’s design featured fruit and vegetable characters enjoying exercise.

Store manager Gareth Rapkins attended Hunstanton Primary School and presented Stephen with his bag and gift card.

He said: “Stephen’s picture of healthy fruit and vegetables really stood out, but it was hard to pick a winner and we’d like to say a big thank you to everyone who entered the competition.

“The design looks fantastic on the hessian bags and customers love them.

“The bags are available in our store on Southend Road while stocks last.”

Headteacher, Nigel Harvey, said: “The pupils are all very excited that Stephen won the competition and are looking forward to the healthy eating workshop.

“The hessian bags look amazing and Stephen’s design is great.”
