Woody Bear was back in town last week, to award prizes to the Summer Woody Bear Colouring Competition winners at the office of Woods Bryce Baker, the Experts in Property in Preston, Paignton.

The popular estate agency launched the fun colouring competition for the summer holidays back in July, with a prize for three different age groups. The brief was to get creative with a Woody Bear picture. Seeing as Woody Bear loves exploring, the agency invited children to not only colour Woody, but to create a background for him too – whether a local landmark, showing people round a house, at a party, out with his friends or something else bright and colourful.

There were tens of entries, all creatively produced using an array of different mediums including pens, pencils and even stampers, with Woody in various scenes. The colourful entries were displayed in the office windows over the summer, then posted to the Woods Homes facebook page and the entries with the most ‘likes’ by 7th October were declared the winners.

Woody presented the prizes last week. Each of the winning children received an art pack containing a paint by numbers kit and a detailed colouring book along with glue, pencils, pens, plenty of paper, crafting bits such as pipe cleaners and lollipop sticks, and a Woods keyring.

Emily, age 13, from Torbay, won the 11-17 years category. Emily’s colourful pride-themed picture is titled ‘LGBTQ+ Bear’ and presents Woody in soft bear-brown tones with a pride flag on his cheek and a rainbow-coloured top, shoes and bucket.

Jess, age 10 and also from Torbay came out top in the 7-10 age group for her picture titled ‘Osca the Ocean Bear’, in which Woody is beautifully coloured in rippling shades of blue while wearing an ombre green t-shirt and carrying a red bucket and spade.

And the winner of the ‘Up to 6 years’ category is Lexi, age 6. In Lexi’s picture, Woody is on the beach wearing a colourful t-shirt and behind Woody are a couple of lovely striped beach huts and a bright yellow sun is beaming down from the blue sky.

Unfortunately, the Woods Bryce Baker team do not have the contact details for Lexi’s parents/guardians, so she doesn’t yet know she’s won the prize and hasn’t met Woody Bear!

Sarah Thomas, Woods Distinctive Homes coordinator, said: “We want to say a massive thank you to all the children who submitted entries, we loved seeing them and having them on display in the office. Well done to Emily, Jess and Lexi for producing such creative pictures. There were so many beautiful entries, it was a tricky decision. It’s such a shame that we don’t have Lexi’s grown-up’s contact details. We’re pretty determined to find her, so if anyone knows who Lexi is, please ask her family to get in touch with us so she can claim her prize!”
