A LOGO designed by Lucas Salinger, aged ten (above), a pupil at Potten End C of E Primary School, Hertfordshire, will be used at events held to celebrate the Queen’s forthcoming 90th birthday celebrations. It was chosen from 1000 entries in a nationwide C of E school competition.

The celebrations will include a service of thanksgiving at St Paul’s Cathedral, a birthday parade at Horseguards Parade, and a street party in the Mall. The chairman of the Church Buildings Council, Sir Tony Baldry, said: “It is wonderful that the visual marker that will unite these events should have been designed by a young church-school pupil.”

Lucas, who incorporated a cross from Holy Trinity, Potten End, in his design, said he was “lost for words” after his entry was chosen. But his head teacher, Andrew Morris, described him as “a thoughtful and talented young man, whose hard work deserves recognition.” The school will be holding its own street party to mark the royal birthday.
