Scottish Water visited some of the local schools involved in its campaign poster competition to hand out some well-deserved prizes to those who made the shortlist.

The overall winner, announced in the Midlothian Advertiser last week, St Luke’s Primary School pupil Ruby Maxwell, met Christine Grahame MSP and Midlothian Provost Peter Smaill in Newtongrange last week to be congratulated and see her winning artwork which has become a huge billboard poster. As the winning artist, Ruby also received a voucher for Fort Douglas Adventure Park at Dalkeith Country Park.
