Win big with logo design

Creative townsfolk are being urged to put pen to paper to win a sound system, worth £100.

The Ilkeston Town Team wants you to create a logo for its new Fantastic Fridays scheme, which was due to launch last month but was cancelled because of the weather.

This is the scheme where people with business ideas can try them out on a free stall on Ilkeston market before taking up a stall permanently or setting up in a shop.

The first event will be held on Friday February 22.

Fantastic Fridays will normally be held on the last Friday of each month. It is hoped that they will also attract more shoppers to the market and increase the footfall to nearby shops.

“We hope that somebody can come up with a logo that will catch people’s eyes and imagination and draw them to the Fantastic Fridays,” said Erewash Partnership project manager Paul Calladine.

Anyone can enter the competition. Their work must include the words Fantastic Fridays and Ilkeston Town Team, and be submitted by 5pm on Sunday February 24.

There will also be a prize for the runner up. Details, including where to send entries, are on the website under competitions.
