Winning Poster Designs on Display throughout Ballymena Town Centre
Posters created by young people from a number of Ballymena Schools have gone on display at various locations throughout Ballymena Town Centre, following the ‘Keep Ballymena Safer, Cleaner and Accessible’ Poster Campaign.
The Poster Campaign was a partnership project between Ballymena BID’s Safer Cleaner Accessible Sub Group and Mid and East Antrim Borough Council’s Environmental Health Department.
Local schools had been invited to design posters to promote awareness amongst residents and visitors. Nine winners were selected from all entries, receiving Cameron’s vouchers from Ballymena BID for their efforts, as well as having their winning design featured on billboards throughout the town centre.
Andrew Storey, Chairman of the Ballymena BID said, “The poster campaign was about promoting ways to keep Ballymena safer, cleaner and accessible but it also highlighted the problem of litter and dog fouling. We would like to thank those who took part in designing the posters. We were delighted with the number of entries, which were all of a very high standard.
“Congratulations once again to the nine winners, I’m sure they are delighted to see their artwork and designs on display throughout the town centre.”
The winning entries were:
Camphill Primary School: Anya Bishop, Abi Montgomery.
Cullybackey College: Cameron Kerr, Melanie Beattie, Ellie Getty, Suzanna Cochrane.
Millquarter Primary School: Erin Duffin, Emily Dougan.
St Colmcilles Primary School: Matthew Watt.
Cllr Paul Reid, Mayor of Mid and East Antrim Borough Council said, “Congratulations to all those who took part in the Poster Campaign and especially to all the winners. The posters are a welcome and colourful addition to the town. This project is an excellent example of how the Council and the BID can work together to make Ballymena’s town centre a more attractive place.”
Andrew Storey concluded, “Once again, I’d like to thank, on behalf of the BID, the schools and the Mid and East Antrim Borough Council’s Environmental Department for their enthusiasm and assistance with this project.”
