Winner of Pembrokeshire County Show’s Little Farmer’s art competition.

Lola Barnett has got plenty to smile about - her artistic talent has won her a top competition.

A pupil at Maenclochog CP School, Lola was the winner of Pembrokeshire County Show's Little Farmer's art competition.

She's won £150 for her school, £50 for herself and most importantly will have the logo she designed featured on the banner for the Pembrokeshire Little Farmer's Education Marquee at the county's top event this summer.

Over 80 entries were received for the competition, with Little Farmers organiser Kath Wilson and 2019 show president Nicola Owen having the unenviable task of selecting the winner.

Headteacher of Maenclochog CP School, Shan Clarke said: "We are delighted with Lola's personal achievement. She has exceptional artistic skills and a good knowledge of agriculture which are evident in her competition entry. The whole school is proud of her."

Visitors to the show which takes place at the County Showground, Withybush, Haverfordwest, from August 13-15 will be able to hop on the land train and visit the Pembrokeshire Little Farmers Marquee - one of the main attractions for families.

Explained Kath Wilson: "The Little Farmers Marquee is aimed at teaching children (as well as the general public) about how our food is grown in Pembrokeshire. It's an interactive farm to fork experience. The children can see what cows eat and drink to enable them to produce milk and follow the journey of milk and how it is made into other products like yogurt, ice-cream, butter etc. Similarly, they can see how wheat becomes flour and is turned dough and then pizza. They will also be able to see chickens and a variety of eggs, the different way vegetables grow, plus there will be bees and they can see how the bees make honey and how it is collected. Having taught for 23 years locally, you would be amazed at how many children think milk, as well as eggs, meat, are in our shops because they come from a factory and are made there hence I feel strongly that we need to teach and show Pembrokeshire children what is being produced in our county and how it gets to us!"

There's also the Little Barn Farm to visit which will also be a huge hit with children. It's a new addition to the show and will be home to lots of baby animals for handling opportunities, including beef and dairy calves, lambs, chicks, ducks and goats (ok kids!).

This can be found at the Countryside Paddock area which features gundog and birds of prey displays and a chance to be coached in clay shooting and archery. In addition, Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority's stand will be focussing on the theme of pollinators and wildflowers and will largely be made up of interactive elements, including 'creating a bug hotel' and a 'wildflower sculpture' made entirely of bottle tops.

And what's even more exciting - all primary school children in Pembrokeshire will receive free entry tickets to the show as a result of a partnership between Pembrokeshire County Council and the Pembrokeshire Agricultural Society.  The tickets are being distributed by schools so parents/guardians, please check their schoolbags!
