Children's no-smoking posters go on display in Crawley
CHILDREN'S anti-smoking posters have been turned into signs which will be displayed at local play areas.
The posters, created by ten children aged between 7 and 13, were chosen out of 150 entries in the Crawley Smoke Free Schools Competition.
The signs will be installed at 30 play areas across the town over the coming weeks.
The winning children included Charlotte Downey, 11, from Thomas Bennett Community College, Jack Tilston, 8, from West Green Primary, and Lauren White, 9, from Gossops Green Primary.

Also among the winners were Kerrie Murphy, 10, from Gossops Green Primary, Brooke Holford, 7, from Milton Mount Primary, and Natalia Rajamohan, 7, from West Green Primary.
The other winners were Amy Perry, 7, from Northgate Primary, Aaminah Azoor, 9, from Maidenbower Juniors, Hayley Bensusan, 13, from Ifield Community College, and Thelevina Quarcoo, 11, from Desmond Anderson Primary.
It is hoped the posters will help remind adults that smoking is banned in the town's play areas.
Lenny Walker, Crawley Borough Council's cabinet member for leisure and culture, said: "It's great to see the creative talents of these young people is being used to such fantastic effect.
"These posters get the smoke-free message across brilliantly. Thank you to all the schools and children who took part."
The winning children received a Cineworld cinema ticket and their schools won PE kit bags, which included balls, rackets, skipping ropes and bean bags.
