Bourne Town Hall's 200th anniversary inspires pupils to get creative
School pupils have got creative to help celebrate an historic Bourne building’s landmark anniversary.
Bourne Town Hall Trust asked pupils to design a logo to mark its 200th anniversary in October and to help launch the hall’s new summer/autumn programme.
Pupils had to include the number 200 and an aspect of the town hall in their design.
"A big thank-you to everyone who participated in the competition," said trust chairman Charles Houseago.
"We were delighted by the quality of all the artwork we received."
The three winning designs will be used in all promotional material throughout the year, as well as limited edition memorabilia.
Rory Connell, of Bourne Westfield Primary School, won the Year 5 and 6 competition, while Bourne Academy pupils Chloe Carlton and Sophia Fry, from Bourne Academy, took the Year 7 and 8, and Year 9 and 10 prizes, respectively.
As well as a series of events leading up to its birthday, the trustees are also planning a week of varied events from Saturday, October 23 for all ages.
The town hall has remained closed during the pandemic, but could reopen next month.
“After making such a brilliant start to hosting regular events, everything came to a standstill,” Charles added.
“However, we are hopeful from June that we can once again open to the public in a Covid-safe environment.
"We can’t wait to welcome everyone back to the old town hall this summer."
