A writing competition, organised by twinning associations, for children aged seven to 12 years old in the Vale has launched.

Children here, as well as in the the Vale’s twin towns of Rheinfelden in Germany, Mouscron in Belgium and Fécamp in France, in partnership with the local libraries are invited to share stories about their towns.

This competition is also marking 50 years since the Vale was twinned with Rheinfelden.

Each child must write a story no longer than 300 words, accompanied by an A5 piece of original art work that represents their story.

Entries will be judged on enjoyment, plot, originality, language and characterisation, and will be split into one category for seven to nine year olds and another for 10 to 12 year old children.

The winning stories will be translated by each twin town into German, English and French to create a booklet.

All entries must be submitted to a nominated representative at each town hall, such as the twinning officer, by Wednesday, February 28.

For more information on the competition, contact cabinet officer, Mark Petherick on 01446 709854.
