Calling all Primary Schools!

The LOVEmyBEACH campaign has teamed up with Blackpool Council and their Illuminations curator Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen to bring you an exciting opportunity open to primary school children across the North West.

Children from Key Stage 1 & 2, from a school within Blackpool, Cumbria, Lancashire, Sefton or Wirral are invited to design a LOVEmyBEACH poster promoting ways to help look after the beach. The winning design will then be transformed into a Blackpool Illumination, on display from 1st September until 5th November 2017.

The posters focus should be based on the LOVEmyBEACH campaign topics which include fat traps, what not to flush, water butts and beach litter. The deadline for entries is Wednesday 19th July, so make sure you don’t miss out!
