BEDSTONE College pupil Tom Sherborn-Hoare has reached the final 30 in the national doodle 4 google competition.

There were 15,000 entries in the competition, which invited doodles on theme of My Britain.

Tom, who lives near Leominster, describes his entry as evoking the countryside of the Shropshire/ Herefordshire border, incorporating insects in the summer, the orchard near his house, fishing on the River Lugg, long walks, trees and beehives.

The finale will be held at the Science Museum in London on November 6 but Tom has already won a goodie bag of art materials, a lavish art book and some Google merchandise.
