Design a coronation celebration bookmark

Solihull Editorial 11th May, 2023   0

CHILDREN and young people in Solihull are invited to design a bookmark which shows how they celebrated the Coronation of King Charles.

It could show a Coronation event in Solihull, a street party with neighbours, drinks and cake with family and friends in front of the television – or something else entirely.

The main thing is to be creative and produce a lasting legacy of the Coronation.

The lucky winners will be invited to have afternoon tea with the Mayor of Solihull and will receive a gift voucher and a certificate.

There are four categories: Under fives, five to eight years, nine to 11 years and 12-16 years.

The best bookmark designs for each category will also be made into Coronation bookmarks for Solihull Libraries.

The Mayor of Solihull, Councillor Ken Meeson, said: “I would like to encourage children and young people from across the borough to take part in Solihull Libraries’ competition and have fun designing some wonderful bookmarks to mark the Coronation this year.

“Competitions such as these really highlight the creativity of children and young people that we have here in Solihull, and I’m excited to see the brilliant designs they come up with.”

To enter, pick up an entry form from any library in the borough.

Entry forms and bookmark template can be downloaded from Solihull Council’s website.

The competition closes on June 5.

Terms and conditions apply.
