CREATIVE Rebecca Lunn has won a prize for her winning poster design.

Rebecca, 11, a pupil of The Regis School, submitted the top design to promote and celebrate the Safer Arun Partnership’s multicultural Christmas event earlier this month.

She won a family day pass to Butlin’s in Bognor.

Two runners-up also won awards in the competition for pupils, held by police officers and firefighters.

These were presented by West Sussex Fire and Rescue Service station manager Dave Benham.

He said afterwards: “It was a pleasure to present the winners with their prizes and to be part of this popular community event.

“By working with local businesses and partner organisations, we were able to showcase the cultural diversity we have in Bognor as well as take the opportunity, to pass on some important seasonal safety tips to people.”

The town centre occasion was held by the partnership to celebrate the rich cultural diversity in Bognor and to raise awareness of fire, personal and road safety over Christmas.

Activities in the London Road precinct included a Santa’s grotto, live music and free Polish food samples.

A spokeswoman for the partnership said: “This has now become a popular annual event in Bognor bringing people from different cultures together and helping to keep our diverse communities safer.

“I’d like to thank everyone who helped make the event a success, including Tesco, Butlin’s, the Base skatepark and Rox Music and Arts.”

Safer Arun Partnership was formed in 1998 with the aim of making the district a safer place for everyone.

It brings together Arun District Council, Sussex Police, West Sussex Fire and Rescue Service and West Sussex County Council.
