Riddlesden Scouts launch 'design a flag' competition

First published in News by

RIDDLESDEN Scouts have launched a competition to design a new flag for their village.

The youngsters hope the flag – the first for Riddlesden– will help foster community spirit.

The winning entry will be chosen by residents after a shortlist has been drawn up by committee.

The competition is the brainchild of Dafydd Jones, a young leader with the 2nd Riddlesden Scouts.

It forms part of the troop's Riddlesden ‘R’ Village campaign, which promotes community events.

A spokesman for the Scout group said: “This new project has been started in order to help create cohesion and a sense of community spirit in Riddlesden.

“Entries will be selected by a group of community members, including local business people and committee leaders.

“There will be a public vote, then the flag will be officially unveiled to the public in a ceremony in the New Year.”

Anyone wishing to enter the flag competition should e-mail riddlesdenflagcomp@gmail.com or visit riddflag.blogspot.com, or post entries to 65 Grafton Road, Keighley BD21 1LJ.

Entries can be submitted between Wednesday, October 1, and Friday, October 31.
