KNUTSFORD'S primary schoolchildren are delving into their imagination to come up with their perfect park.

Mayor Cllr Colin Banks has challenged the youngsters to draw a picture of their ideal park as part of the town council's green spaces consultation.

Postcards have been sent out in book bags, with children having until June 21 to submit their entries to the council offices or their school.

The entries will help identify what is most important to children when using public open spaces and will help inform the council’s new Green Spaces Strategy.

Cllr Banks, who will be judging the competition alongside the mayoress, said: "Our drawing competition is a fun way of getting the views of our younger Knutsfordians.

"I’m really looking forward to seeing what they draw and later on hearing what the parents say through our survey."

One pupil from each school will be selected as winners, receiving a prize of art supplies.

The competition aims to promote the council’s Green Spaces Survey to parents and encourage more Knutsford residents to share their views of what is important when it comes to the town's parks, woodlands and green spaces.

Completing the main survey enters residents into a draw to win £100 of Knutsford Vouchers. It can be found online at with paper copies at The Welcome and Knutsford Library.

Postcards can be collected from the council offices.
