Youngsters have been collecting their prizes after finding 'wanted' people at a community event.

Leek Town Council's Events Committee ran a children's competition at the recent Country and Western Weekend, 'Gunfight at the Oatcake Corral', in Leek. The challenge set for the youngsters involved them finding 'wanted' members of the events committee.

The winners have emerged as Orla Kelsey, aged six, along with sisters Caitlin, aged 12, and 11-year-old Abbey Taaffe, who each won a £15 WHSmith voucher.

Chairman of the events committee, Councillor Barry Cowie, said: "They had to find us and ask us to sign the 'wanted' form they each had.

"We had around 60 entries in the competition, which was a great response.

Orla, who attends St Mary's Primary School, said: "I found it fun but tricky as well because some of the characters were tricky to spot."

Abbey, who also attends St Mary's, said: "I did this competition with my sister. We didn't think we would win, but I am very happy we did. I would love to go to something like that again because the competition meant there was something more exciting for us children to do."
