St Thomas's School 'books' a place on the promenade

As part of its support for Island of Culture the Henry Bloom Noble Library, in partnership with the Council’s parks section,  invited children from St Thomas’s School to create designs of their favourite book characters that could be made into floral displays for the play area on Douglas promenade.


The chosen designs, Peppa Pig, SpongeBob SquarePants and War Horse, were devised by children from the school’s gardening club. Lexie Gibson designed Peppa Pig, Matthew McCausland War Horse and Kieron Shimmin SpongeBob.
