Water Works April winning photo 'Droplets' by Aimee Holton
You don't realise how precious water is until you see things like the hose pipe ban in England. It makes us appreciate every last droplet even more.

April's winner of the Water Works schools photograph competition is 16-year-old Aimee Holton of Banchory Academy in Aberdeenshire.

Her entry was "Droplets" about which she said: "You don't realise how precious water is until you see things like the hose pipe ban in England. It makes us appreciate every last droplet even more."

Selecting the winning photograph the judges said: "This image clearly portrays the important message of clean good quality water, especially when keys issues such as hose pipe bans are currently in place."

The judges also highly commended entries from Sophie Duncan of Madras College, St Andrews and Erin Rafferty of Mintlaw Primary School, Aberdeenshire.
