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 to the nine winners I’m sure they are delighted to have won and no doubt look forward to seeing their artwork and designs on posters in 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 Schoool: Matthew Watt.

Councillor Audrey Wales MBE, Mayor of Mid and East Antrim Borough Council said: “Congratulations to all those who took part, particularly the winners. It was lovely to meet so many young people who are enthusiastic about our environment.

“All their designs were excellent and imaginative and I hope they will encourage our citizens to keep Ballymena, safer, cleaner and accessible. This project is an excellent example of how Council and the BID can work together to make Ballymena’s town centre a more attractive place.”

Alison Moore concluded, “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.”
