SMOKEFREE posters designed by local children are going on display for No Smoking Day.

As part of today’s No Smoking Day, the wellbeing service ran a poster competition with children from Horsham District’s primary schools.

Seven schools entered the competition and four winning designs were chosen from different age groups.

The winners were Holly Greenfield, eight, from Slinfold CE Primary School in Slinfold, Rachel Hughes, six, from Trafalgar Community Infant School in Horsham, Ava O’Donnell, ten, from St John’s Catholic Primary School in Horsham and Bryony Banks, seven, from St Andrew’s CE Primary School in Steyning.

Staff from the wellbeing service will be at The Octagon in Chart Way, Horsham between 11am and 2pm today to give information, advice and tips on quitting smoking and making healthier lifestyle choices.
