Pavements across St George and Redfield have been brightened up this month, following Summerhill Infants School’s Chalk Challenge.  The event, which was organised by the Playing Out community project, saw 270 pupils sent home with chalk and asked to decorate their street with fun designs.

Each pupil was asked to take a picture of their creation to be entered into the competition.

In the end, six winners were chosen and each received a packet of chunky chalk.

“Chalking pictures in the street is one of the favourite activities during a playing out session,” explained Jo Chesterman, local area activator for Playing Out. “There was a lot of talk in the playgrounds about the challenge. You may have seen a few of the drawings around the area during this time – don’t worry, rain washes the chalk away, and we do get a LOT of rain in Bristol!”
