Rainbow competition for Tameside children

Police are holding a rainbow competition for children across Tameside, with some special prizes on offer for the most creative designs and displays.

Greater Manchester Police's Tameside team are having the competition for youngsters aged 16 and under to say thank you for the support they have shown officers, as well as other emergency services and key workers. 

All children have to do is take a clear picture of the rainbow display they have created - which can be a rainbow, lettering, drawing, words of support, a graphic design or colouring etc. 

They should then upload it in the comments section of this Facebook post if you live in Tameside North or this Facebook post if you live in Tameside South

Only one entry per child is allowed and use the hashtag #StaySafeRainbow when you post. 

The deadline for submissions is the end of the month (May 31). 

Thirty winners will be chosen in total - 15 each from the Tameside North and Tameside South Facebook pages respectively - once the competition has closed.

The top 10 winners will be invited to visit GMP's Tactical Dog Unit and Mounted Horse Unit to meet the furrier members of the force and have a group photo (when safe to do so), as well as receive a mystery prize. 

Twenty other winners will receive some craft prizes, like these...
