Children's designs used to create town's Christmas lights

Wednesday, 26th November 2014.

Budding young artists from Haverhill Primary Schools came to Haverhill Arts Centre on yesterday and received certificates from town mayor Cllr Roger Andre to celebrate their designs being used for the new Christmas Lights on the Market Square.

Their family members were also there to help them acknowledge the achievement.

Earlier on in the year Haverhill Town Council invited Haverhill primary schools to submit designs and from the hundreds that were submitted six designs from children were selected.

Before the winners were presented with a certificate, Cllr Andre paid tribute to the artistic skills of the youngsters and talked about Haverhill Town Council investing in and showcasing young talent.

The winning designs, selected by Chris Stille of Gala Lights, were:
* An angel designed by Maisie Gower from Westfield Primary;
* A holly sprig designed by Siena Saunders from Place Farm Primary Academy;
* An elf designed by Maddie Richardson from New Cangle Primary;
* A penguin designed by Destiny Ennin from Clements Primary;
* A robin designed by Ryan Hodges from Burton End Primary Academy;
* A Father Christmas designed by Mateusz Drozdziel from St Felix RC VAP.

Nick Keeble, Haverhill Town Council arts and leisure manager, said: “We had a great reaction to the kids’ lights that were put up last year so the Council decided to run the scheme again.

"We had some amazing pictures and those chosen are sure to put a seasonal smile on your face. The lights created for 2013 will this year decorate Queen Street. In all there will be 13 unique lights designed by local school children in town."

The children have also been invited to help turn on their individual lights at the switch-on ceremony with Britain’s Got Talent sensation Patsy May on Haverhill Market Square on Friday, December 5, at 6.30pm.
