A pair of Bungay High School students have won a competition to design the new logo for Halesworth. Part of the Portas pilot town team’s efforts to revitalise the town, the new logo will represent the town on local tourism materials and merchandise, helping to boost Halesworth’s profile.
Halesworth was named as a Portas pilot scheme town last year, receiving £10,000 towards the regeneration of the high street. As part of the effort to rejuvenate the town, a competition was held to find a new logo.
Kate Racho, 15, and Frankie South, 14, won with a pair of stunning designs, which were then combined by local design company Mustard Creative.
Laura Churchill, who is leading the project in Halesworth, told the Eastern Daily Press: “We want to put Halesworth on the map. Tourists always say they didn’t know this place existed but once they’ve discovered it they say they are going to come back again.”
