Lilybell Wood was one of nearly 100 children who entered Islesburgh Drama Group’s competition, which was open to all primary four to seven pupils, to design a picture based on the theme of this year’s panto, Puss in Boots.

The ten-year-old also won tickets to the panto.

Trustee Martin Summers said: “The group was totally overwhelmed by the quality and variety of the entries submitted by the children and we spent many hours on the difficult matter of choosing a winner.”

All entries will be showcased in the foyer of the Garrison Theatre during the production run of Puss in Boots, which will take place at the Lerwick venue from 28 November to 8 December.
