A colorful sign designed by a resident will soon be installed in Rainham.

Natasha Springett, from Gillingham, was crowned the winner of our Rainham town sign competition.

Residents were invited to celebrate their city by submitting designs for the new sign in this Platinum Jubilee year.

Natasha is a mechanical engineer and also a leader with the 2nd Parkwood Brownies. The young members of the group also submitted designs for the sign as part of their jubilee activities.

The new sign is due to be installed outside Natwest across from the shopping district later this year and residents will be able to view all entrances during a display at the Rainham Library on Birling Avenue from Monday September 12 to Saturday September 29 october.

Welcoming city residents for years to come

Cllr Phil Filmer, Medway Council Portfolio Holder for Frontline Services, said: “I would like to congratulate Natasha on her great design. We received fantastic applications and the new sign is a great way to mark Rainham’s platinum jubilee and welcome residents to the town for years to come. I look forward to seeing the panel once it is installed.

Look at the fantastic designs of the Rainham bookcase

Medway Council for Education and Schools Portfolio Holder and Child Friendly Medway Champion, Cllr Martin Potter said: “I am delighted that so many young people have entered our City of Rainham and I encourage residents to check out the fantastic designs in Rainham Library. As a judging panel, we struggled to choose between the entries, but Natasha’s design was a worthy winner and all of the entries showcase the creative talent of our community.

I’m super proud

Natasha said, “As the leader of the Brownies, I made my sign with the Brownies because I thought they would like it too. Then my fiancé joked that you would probably win, but I didn’t believe him because I only won design contests in school, never as an adult. I’m super proud of myself and happy to have participated. Maybe one day my future great-grandchildren will see the sign and know their grandmother designed it. Isn’t that great? »

The judging panel included members of the local community and council representatives including Mayor of Medway Cllr Jan Aldous, a local businessman and former High Sheriff of Kent, John Weir JP and founder of the Rainham Bereavement Group and winner of the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service, Julie Sharp .
