PUPILS have created a lasting legacy for a popular Rose Green Park.

Paul Hughes, seven, Rocco Bateman, six, and five-year-old Freya Morrison proved their artistic prowess by lending a hand to create a new logo for the Friends of Avisford Park.

The trio, who all attend Rose Green Infant School, were praised for their creative works at a special assembly last Friday by chairman of the friends Jan Malpas.

Jan said: “I would like to say thank you to all of you for your fantastic work. It really was a hard job for the judges to pick a winner.

“We decided to take bits out of the three to create the design, which I think looks fantastic.”

The new logo features Rocco’s rainbow, keen footballer Paul’s boot 
and Freya’s skateboards and bees.

MP for Bognor Regis and Littlehampton Nick Gibb was also at the celebration.

He said: “I think the new logo is great. The ideas the three came up with are so different and really sum up what goes on in the park.

“It is good the young people who use the park have had a chance to create something that will last for a long time.”

As well as sweets to share throughout the school, the winners were also given a high-visibility jacket featuring the logo prominently on the back.

The Friends of Avisford Park is a new group set up to protect and promote the park.

Jan said: “Avisford Park is very much a community space. The children from this school use it and it is great they have some sort of ownership over it.”
