14 year old Connor Loughlin from Bradley Stoke Community School has won the competition to design a leaflet to promote the Forest of Avon Trust’s Text a Tree competition.
Connor’s design was chosen ahead of others because of its eye-catching design and clear messages. He was delighted to win and sees this project as contributing to a career in IT.
Connor’s leaflet will be promoted on line by Almondsbury Garden Centre, who have very kindly paid for its production. It will also be widely distributed locally.
The ‘Text A Tree’ scheme is a really easy way of getting a tree or shrub planted locally, but also gives participants a chance to win one of several great prizes. See The Text A Tree Website for full details of how to get a tree planted locally and to be entered into the prize draw (a charge applies). If you are unable to text, but would still like to get a tree planted locally and enter the draw, you can buy raffle tickets from at Bradley Stoke Library on Thursday 5th and Friday 13th May.
Jon Clark, Executive Director of the Forest of Avon Trust told us: “We are delighted that Connor has won and would really like to thank all the students from Bradley Stoke Community School who took part in the design competition. A special thank you also to Claire Wilson, Director of Community Cohesion, Bradley Stoke Community School for her help with this project.”
