The budding artists from Belmont Primary School, Erith were busy making an Easter card - on a car at SMC Mitsubishi, Erith Road, Erith.

Sales manager Warren Layne said: "The car will be on display over the Easter period and the young artists' parents and families are very welcome to come along and see what their children have done to our car!"

Deputy Mayor of Bexley, Nick O'Hare, joined in the fun on March 7 and added a goodwill message of his own on the bonnet.

He said: "The children had great fun decorating the car and so did I!"

Deputy headteacher of the school which teaches pupils with a range of learning difficulties, Eileen Vamplew said: "It was a lovely surprise.
