The Parish Council is looking for a new logo.
We are looking for a fairly simple and distinctive design to represent the communities of Hugglescote and Donington le Heath.
This is open to people of all ages, schools, businesses, organisations and individuals who live or work in the Parish area. There will be a £150 prize for the design adopted by the Parish Council.
The logo would appear on the councils stationary and notice boards and could be based on features of the parish, the initials, the shape of the parish or anything else.
Design ideas should be submitted to the Clerk of the Parish council by the 27 January 2016. The best designs will be published for the Parish Council to vote for their favourite design.
