Pupils win creative community competition

TWO pupils from local primary schools have won a competition to design a logo and invent a catchy strapline for two community events taking place this summer.

Ezrie Prideaux, aged 12, from Ash Green School and Mia Farndon, aged 9, from Wheelwright Lane Primary School, entered the competition which was open to pupils from schools across Coventry.

Each participating school chose their own winner and the shortlisted designs were then entered into a final stage to decide the overall winners.

Ezrie's logo and event title "Ash Green & Exhall Festival" and Mia's strapline "It's all for the community!" have now been worked into an official design by Zoe's Place Baby Hospice and RNIB Pears Centre.

"The organising committee were really impressed with the creativity and range of fantastic ideas submitted," said The Reverend Andrew Gandon of St Giles' Church in Exhall.

"I'd like to thank all children who took part in the competition, especially our winners Ezrie and Mia, whose entries show diversity and community spirit and translate into a logo really well!"

The local events are being organised by schools and charities based in Ash Green and Exhall, with St Giles' Parish Church, to celebrate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee and 2012 Olympics.

The festival aims to bring together the communities of Ash Green and Exhall and is also open to the wider public.

One event will take place on June 23 at Ash Green School and the other July 14 at St Giles School, with both consisting of games, entertainment, community information and refreshments.
