DENBIGH roundabout has been adorned with new signs during the most recent effort by a popular volunteer group.

Denbigh in Bloom, a gardening volunteer task force formed under the RHS's ‘Britain in Bloom’, a UK-wide initiative to encourage civic improvement through community gardening groups, has situated a sign with their new logo on Denbigh's A252 roundabout last Friday.

The logo features a tall-standing blue flower surrounded by light blue skies, summery clouds, floating flower heads and a rainbow.

The design belongs to Faith Jackson-Wyatt, 8, pupil at Ysgol Frongoch, daughter of Don Jackson-Wyatt, popular photographer in Denbigh, who was selected over 250 entries from primary school pupils in the area.

Lyndsey Tasker, chair of Denbigh in Bloom, recently awarded with North Wales Police Crimebeat’s High Sheriff Award for the group’s encouragement of primary schools to get involved in community work, was delighted with Faith’s new logo. Ms Tasker said: “This is an amazing design by Faith. It is great to see young people in the area contributing to the group.”

All 250 entries were whittled down to 12 by the group’s volunteers, from which a top five were selected by acclaimed Denbigh artist Sarah Carvell. The final five were then voted on by the public.

Ms Tasker added: “There were lot of great designs in the competition. The public had to choose from the final five and we’re absolutely delighted.

“It is colourful, attention-grabbing and captures the idea of ‘bloom’ in its own way.”

Since the competition last year, the logo has been redeveloped and enhanced into its current graphic design. This will allow the design to be printed on the group’s work elsewhere, including its planter baskets and flower beds around the town, as well as its upcoming 2019 calender.

The materials for the signage were supplied and printed by Humphreys Signs, Denbigh, while the wooden posts were provided by Bodfari Charcoal.

Ms Tasker said: “We can only afford these projects through donations and funding applications.

“When money comes in it gets ploughed back into the group. We always use local businesses for any materials we need to keep money in the local economy, so donors’ money is well spent.”

The group is continuing to work on Denbigh roundabout and Temple Bar and is always looking for more support. To join the group of volunteers or donate, contact Lyndsey on 01745 814235 or visit the Carpet Emporium to speak in person.
