As part of the Jubilee celebrations on Ashmore Park the Ashmore Park Community Together committee organised an art competition – sending entry forms to allÂ primary schools on the estate – asking them to create a piece of art work that would not only form the basis of their fun days programme but would also be transferred onto a 2 metre by 2 metre canvas for the community to come along and paint during the festivities on Tuesday 5th June.
Judged by a sub committee of James Clarke and Steph Jennings from the WV11 website, Derek TomlinsonÂ treasurerÂ of the Ashmore Park Community Association and Jo Leach of St AlbansChurch – They had aÂ Â hard time picking from them. The children of Ashmore Park provided some high quality entries – there were hundreds ofÂ entriesÂ from the different schools but finally a winner was picked along with 2 runners up and a few highlyÂ commended.
Bernadette Kraujalis – Aged 11
Danni -Jay-Rhodes-O’Neill – Aged 11

Cassie Degg – Aged 5
Tyrell Johnson -Aged 5
Berinyuy (Bevi) Ngamsha – Aged 9

The winning entry will be hung in Ashmore Park Library along with the completed community piece after the ACT Jubilee Fun Day. All their art work can be seen in the gallery below, as well as on our Facebook page.
The Ashmore Park Community Together Jubilee fun day will be taking place Albans school field Tuesday 5th June 12pm – 4pm. As well as the community art project there will also be Fancy Dress competitions, Bouncy Castle, Laser Quest, a bucking bronco, free refreshments, hot food stalls, tombola, and a whole array of liveÂ entertainment.
