Handy with a paintbrush, pencils or other creative tools? People of all ages are invited to take part in an art competition that could see their work featuring in a calendar to commemorate the end of World War One.

Wycombe District Council is working with the Royal British Legion and the calendar will be sold to raise funds for their Poppy Appeal.

There will also be a local display of entries.

Cllr Graham Peart, Cabinet Member for Community, said: “This is a significant anniversary for our country, as we remember those who died for our freedom. We may even have ancestors among the fallen.

“Commemorating and remembering their sacrifice through art is a lovely tribute. I look forward to seeing the entries, from people of all ages.”

Artwork can be submitted in one of five age categories (five and under, six to nine, 10 to 13, 13+, and 18 and over) by Saturday 30 June. The theme is ‘Commemorating the 100th anniversary of the end of WW1 / Remembrance’.
