A community campaign to refurbish part of a well used park in Windermere has got a new logo thanks to local Children.
A logo design competition for the project was run through Windermere’s local primary schools, with nearly one hundred designs being submitted. The designs were whittled down to just four with a presentation for the Winner, second place and two runners up having taken place on the Rec on Sunday (12th May).
Local mum Vikki Bolton, who is a member of the Windermere Park for All committee, thanked all the children who had worked so hard putting together designs:
“The number and quality of the designs was excellent, it just shows how engaged our community is in working toward a better park for all.”
The Winner was Molly Lawrence who will not only have her design used as the campaign logo, including integration into the design of the park, but also bagged goodies including a family cruise pass courtesy of Windermere Lake Cruises and some chocolates.
Speaking at the awards ceremony on the Rec local Councillor Ben Berry praised Molly’s design saying:
“We loved how Molly integrated Windermere Park for All, users of the park and a very happy rainbow in one design. It will show our funders what we are all about and I hope we can get it immortalized here on the park.”
Also thanked were Lucia Musetti, Georgina Boden and Gemma Hayton all of whom had designs that were shortlisted by the Committee.
