Young artists create a ‘sporting spectacle’ in the South Hook calendar
Children from across Pembrokeshire, whose paintings feature in the 2012 South Hook LNG calendar, attended a presentation at the Torch Theatre, Milford Haven to see their artwork in print for the first time.
As the UK awaits the arrival of the London Games this summer, South Hook LNG invited Pembrokeshire school children to create a picture of their favourite sport.
The resulting calendar is a colourful collection of the sports best loved by our County’s youngsters, with a snapshot of how the same sports are equally as popular in Qatar – the Arabian state from where South Hook receives LNG.
“The high standard of the entries was overwhelming and I’d like to thank all the schools and the children who participated in the competition” said Director & General Manager, Mohammed Al Naimi.
All winners were presented with a prize to thank them for their participation, with their respective school receiving £500 towards the purchase of new sports equipment.
The 2012 calendar continues South Hook LNG’s ongoing programme of cultural development and learning between Wales and Qatar.
