Edinburgh Activities And Fun

Hallowe’en Sat 2 t& Stm 3 .\'oy.


The List offices have been overwhelmed with entries for The Big Draw competition and they’ve certainly brightened up our autumn days. After long and hard deliberation we’re pleased to announce that Scarlet Robertson, aged 6, and Lula Elena Erdman, aged 10, are the winners. We particularly liked Scarlet’s sense of movement and fun in showing herself playing football, and Lula’s dream of being served beer and chocolate by dragonflies reveals a girl truly after our own hearts. Runners up in the 4—75 category are Kyle Thomas, aged 5, jumping on the bed and Laura Toffolo, aged 5, flying in the sky. Runners up in the 8-11 age group are Jack Abbott, aged 9, directing an adventure film and Ewan Allen, aged 11, brewing up some potions as a mad scientist. All winners and runners up will receive sketch pads worth £50 from Windsor and Newton; Scarlet and Lula’s

entries are printed below.
