THE winners of a Jubilee poster competition have been named.
The Chesham Events Group, which is organising the town’s royal celebrations taking place between June 2 and 5, ran a competition for children in school years reception to six to design a poster to promote the Queen’s diamond jubilee celebrations in the town.
The group received dozens of entries but the three winners were picked by former mayor, Councillor Derek Lacey.
Newtown School pupil Jedd Highett, seven, won the reception to year two category.
Billie Fisher, seven, who goes to Waterside School, bagged first place in the years three to four category.
Fellow Waterside School pupil Nadia Soukri, 10, won the years five to six category. Her mother, Rita, said: “She was very surprised but we’re very proud of her.”
All the winners were presented with a chocolate shoe courtesy of Auberge du Chocolat at the annual town meeting last Thursday.
The chairman of Chesham Events Group, Councillor Alison Pirouet, said: “We’re thrilled with the entries we received and the standard was very high, even in the reception category.
“All entries will be displayed in shops around the town so everyone will have to go and see if they can find their poster.
“Part of the jubilee is about brightening the place up.
“I’m really looking forward to it all. I’d encourage everyone to just come down and enjoy the celebrations, it’s free and you don’t have to book.”
