Local schoolchildren's talent shines through in their festive illustrations.

Broughty Ferry Traders Association challenged children from the town's three primary schools to some up with a special illustration which embodied the spirit of the season which will be used on the posters and leaflets to publicise the town's Xmas Light Night on Thursday 27 November. Communities Officer, Carole Jenkins, encouraged the schools to get involved and the completion was judged by local gallery owner, Sandro Paladini of Eduardo Alessandro Studios who also sponsors the competition.

Sandro said:
'We're proud to do our bit to encourage creativity amongst the youngsters of Broughty Ferry. They're clearly a very talented bunch because choosing the winner is always a bit of a challenge!
