CHILDREN made sure they made their mark in helping to relaunch a website that encourages a healthy lifestyle.

Artwork measuring 20ft by 30ft was created by pupils from St George’s Beneficial School, in Hanover Street, Portsea, and children who go to Landport Adventure Playground.

They worked with artist Mandie Shaw on the artwork at the John Pounds Centre, Queen Street, Portsea.

The colourful piece was made with fabrics and recycled materials.

Mandie said: ‘The children had a fun and creative afternoon, and found out more about healthy lifestyles too.

‘Healthy refreshments were also available and other activities such as space hoppers and hula hoops.’

The scheme is funded by NHS Portsmouth and run by Portsmouth City Council’s health improvement and development service. To get advice on a range of health topics visit healthypompey.com.
