Village is united under new logo
A new logo which will represent Glengormley and sends out a clear message “Say No to Division, Share our Village” was launched last week.
As part of the ongoing work between Newtownabbey Borough Council and the Community Relations Forum, young people from the area were invited to take part in a design competition to promote Glengormley as a place for everyone.
Given the brief “Our Village is a Shared Village”, the entries were judged by a panel including former Mayor John Scott, Kathy Wolff, Community Relations Forum, Ian Patterson chairman of Glengormley Chamber of Commerce and local parents Amanda Mullan and Rebecca O'Reilly.
Former Mayor John Scott said: “I am seriously impressed with the talents and sentiments shown by these young people in their designs.”
Kathy Wolff, from the Community Relations Forum added: “It is clear local young people of all ages see a place where people of all races and all community backgrounds can come together and enjoy themselves”.
The overall winner was Glengormley Youth Centre with their joint effort “Say No to Division” and the winner in the junior section was Jenny Bell from Mallusk Primary School.
The logo will be on display in shop windows in Glengormley over the summer.
