A Reydon youngster has won a competition to have her rainbow-inspired design displayed on a community bus.

Nine-year-old Lexi Stalker, who attends Reydon Primary School, near Southwold, saw her design - aptly titled 'Mr Bus' - defeat 150 other entries to the prize of having an image immortalised on the Sole Bay Community Bus.

Children from schools throughout the area submitted their designs, but Lexi's was picked as the winner by signmakers EPS Transfers, based in Halesworth.

It has now been displayed on the bus, which has resumed operations after being forced to stop running temporarily due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Cathy Ryan MBE, chairwoman of Sole Bay Care Fund, presented Lexi with a 90-piece art set and a gift voucher as congratulations for winning the competition.
