Following an overwhelming amount of submissions from schools from across the borough, mayor of Havering, Councillor Linda Van den Hende has shortlisted ten of her favourite designs and it’s now down to the readers of the Romford Recorder to vote.
The winning design will be recreated on a giant bauble that will be the focal point of The Liberty’s festive decorations, with the winner’s school being invited to sing at an unveiling ceremony at the shopping centre attended by the mayor.
The winner and a group from their school will also be invited to a special reception with the mayor in early December, where they will visit her parlour and enjoy tea and mince pies.
The shortlisted finalists will also be invited to the centre during the run up to Christmas to sing carols around the centre’s Christmas tree.
To vote, simply head to the The Liberty’s Facebook page (@LibertyRomford) and “like” your favourite design in the dedicated gallery.
Alternatively, email email@example.com with the name of your chosen name and school, or pick up a form from The Liberty’s customer service desk.
