Speke pupil wins Smoke Free Homes logo competition
Published: 29 July 2019
A smoke-free homes campaign in South Liverpool has recently got a brand new logo, designed by 11-year-old Nadia from St. Christopher’s school, Speke.
Nadia Bielecka’s eye-catching design impressed the judges after they received entries from St. Christopher’s Primary School, Holy Trinity Catholic Primary School and Garston Church of England Primary School.
The Smoke Free Homes campaign is a joint project involving South Liverpool Homes (SLH), Merseyside Fire and Rescue Service, Smoke Free Liverpool and Liverpool City Council. As well as supporting people to stop smoking, the campaign will focus on the importance of protecting others from second-hand smoke and reducing smoking-related fires in homes. After gathering information in a tenant survey, SLH is developing a programme to support tenants who choose to maintain a smoke free environment in their homes.
The winning design will now be turned into a sticker that can be displayed in tenants’ windows or doors of those who choose to take part in the campaign, as a way of communicating to their guests that smoking is not permitted inside their home.
Nadia won a bus tour of Knowsley Safari Park for herself and her family, courtesy of Peoples Bus Ltd, for her fabulous entry. The runner-up prizes were awarded to Jodie Leigh-Bradley from Holy Trinity Catholic Primary School and Emily from Garston C of E Primary School who both won £25 worth of Love to Shop vouchers courtesy of South Liverpool Homes.
Nadia has just come to the end of year 6 at her primary school. Miss Crosby who is a receptionist at the school said, “Nadia is a budding artist and has made us all really proud. We’ll be sad to see her go!”.
Claire Ryan, Director of Investment and Assets at SLH said, “This campaign is about raising awareness of the risks of smoking in your home and protecting others, especially children, from the inhalation of second-hand smoke. The children have been really creative in their designs and I’m looking forward to seeing these stickers in windows over the next couple of months.”
The Smoke Free Homes campaign will continue its involvement with local schools, with Merseyside Fire and Rescue Service visiting the schools and talking to pupils about why it’s dangerous to smoke in the home.
