Student designs new Haverhill in Bloom logo
The first re-brand for a decade by Haverhill in Bloom (HiB) has led to four students from a town school winning prizes.
The organisation invited students from the town’s secondary schools to enter a competition to design a new logo.
HiB members then decided that the best logo was the one submitted by Castle Manor Academy student Alice Laver, which combined the CB9 emblem representing Haverhill with flowers.
Fellow Castle Manor students Bansari Sanghri and Natasha Pryors came joint second and Chloe Rankin fourth with their designs, with all receiving Amazon gift vouchers and a framed copy of their designs.
Ben Pumfrey, HiB chairman, said: “We decided the CB9 emblem with the flowers growing out of it was the one we liked the most.
“It’s a good way of joining our group with the town; using the town’s emblem but with a tweak that says Haverhill in Bloom.”
HiB also has a new website - www.haverhillinbloom.org.uk - thanks to members Tony Turner, Michael Simpkin and David Roach.
The first sponsor of the new website was the East of England Co-operative Funeral Service, for whom sector manager for the East of England, David Downes said: “At the East of England Co-op Funeral Service we like to support local community based groups like Haverhill in Bloom.
“Having witnessed first-hand, fantastic work the team do, in their own time, we are proud to support them by being the first sponsor of newly launched website.”
Mr Pumfrey added: “Now we’ve got the platform we want to go for it. We want to get a minimum amount of money in each year so its self-maintaining so we can do more community projects.”
