FLYING high above a village, a flag designed by a school pupil has been raised to celebrate everything good about Warsash.
The first flag to represent the village was designed by Ellie Schneider, from Hook-with-Warsash Church of England Academy.
The Year 6 pupil won a competition held at the school last term by ward councillor Trevor Cartwright.
Pupils of all ages came up with designs and the councillor short-listed five designs – one from each year group – and these children went for a trip to the clocktower to see the flag when it was put in place last week.
These children were; Thomas James, from Year 1; Lottie Chase, from Year 2; Willow Armstrong, from Year 3; Annabel Harrold, from Year 4 and Ellie.
Cllr Cartwright said: ‘The children were taken up to the top of the tower to see the views courtesy of Simon Woodhams, the owner, where they were treated to cakes and squash and Ellie was presented with a trophy.
‘Simon said he will make this an annual event for the children, which the head teacher Sara Willoughby was delighted to hear. Next year when the new flag has been designed, Ellie will be given her winning flag to keep.’
