Following on from my post yesterday on St Piran's Day, a highlight of my involvement this will be presenting Oliver Beaumont, a Year 2 student at Truro School Prep, with a certificate and a framed print of his winning ‘bold and striking’ design for a poster competition to help promote this year's St Piran's Day Parade in Truro.
Oliver’s design can now be seen in shop windows and on noticeboards around the city.
The competition, run by the organisers of the city St Piran's Day Parade, was open to pupils in the Truro area.
They said they had been so impressed with the response that they had now decided to hold an exhibition featuring all the designs.
Elizabeth Stewart, who is co-ordinating this year's parade, said: "We were overwhelmed by how many students entered the competition, and how much time and effort had gone into the designs.
"It seemed a shame for only one of them to be seen in public, so we're putting on an exhibition so that people can see them all."
The parade takes place on March 5, starting at Waterfall Gardens at 1.15pm before making its way through the streets to High Cross, where I will be presenting Oliver with his prize.
The exhibition will take place in the Truro Town Council Municipal Buildings from Tuesday until March 8.
