CHILDREN are being invited to put their creative skills to the test and draw a picture of their perfect cake.

Tarporley Garden Centre on Forest Road, Cotebrook, is challenging youngsters to enter the drawing competition.

Manager Neil MacWilliam said: “We would like children aged between four and eight years-old to draw and decorate their perfect cake on an entry form.

“It can be any shape or colour but it must be themed around something British such as the Jubilee, native flowers or anything else with a British theme.”

Tarporley will be running the competition alongside its sister garden centres in The Garden Centre Group.

Neil added: “There will be one overall winner nationwide who will win a ‘My Picnic’ for 20 friends or classmates at one of our garden centres’ restaurant as well as private hire of one of our play areas.”

Entries must be in by 4.30pm on Friday, August 31. The winner will be announced on Monday, September 17.
