PRIDE in Portsmouth is the theme of a student exhibition which forms part of celebrations in the run up to National Civic Day.

The Portsmouth Society is inviting people who live in and love the city to enjoy a range of artworks from year seven schoolchildren at the Central Library in Guildhall Square from Monday until Saturday.

The work was submitted as part of the School’s Project, a competition which invited 11 and 12-year-olds to express what they like about Portsmouth through art, writing and digital media.

Competition winners will be announced during a special ceremony at the library on National Civic Day, which falls on June 25.

Rev Terry Carter, the society’s secretary, said: ‘We would like to encourage members and their friends to view the exhibition.

‘The students have done this city proud with their imaginative interpretations of what they love best about it.

‘It’s a great occasion to celebrate our community.’

The Portsmouth Society will have a stall at Cascades shopping centre next week to raise awareness of the work they do and encourage new members. It will be opposite the Anne Harvey store between 11am and 2pm from Monday to Friday.
