A solicitors company has set up a fun competition for children.

The competition involves drawing a puppet that will be put up in the company's shop window.

The business, Cartmell Shepherds Solicitors, which has offices in Brampton and Haltwhistle, is an award winning firm and are one of the north’s leading law firms.

They are also strong supporters of community projects and activities, one such is this one, which is a part of the Hadrian's Wall 1900 festival next year, which is celebrating 1900 years since Hadrian's Wall was erected and invovles a plethora of activities, events, talks and competitions across the county.

The competition sets out a challenge to create a drawing of the commisioned puppet.

Once the festival is underway later this month, competition entries can be handed into the firm's offices in Brampton and Haltwhistle.

The winner of the competition will have their drawing shown in the shop window of their Haltwhistle office, and they will also be able to keep the puppet.

The puppet will be hand made by puppet maker and talented young Cumbrian artist Emily Bailey, who has previously made the news for her puppets that represented and replicated notable people who live and work in and around Cockermouth.

For her project in Cockermouth, she received sponsorship from Cartmell Shepherd Solicitors, Strolling4 Shoes, Cockermouth & District Chamber of Trade, the town’s Round Table and Rotary Clubs, and The Moon & Sixpence.

The competition is open to children aged 4 to 11, who will be asked to submit a drawing of the puppet.

The public will be asked to vote for what they think is the best drawing through social media.
