TWO youngsters from a Wisbech school will be given the star treatment at the town's Rainbow supermarket, when it reopens for business.

The supermarket is scheduled to reopen on Tuesday, November 13, almost a year after being destroyed by fire.

Two pupils of Elm Road Primary School will officially reopen the store, after a half-term drawing competition in which pupils had to draw their favourite foods.

Judging will take place next week, when children return from their half term, with a winner from Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2. The competition winners will be joined by the school's council for the opening.
