A LOCAL school girl has won a competition to design a new flag for Spire The Glen Hospital Bristol - the biggest private hospital in the South West.
Lilah Gronback, 10, from Redland High School caught the imagination of staff at the hospital with a thoughtful design using Spire’s logo and colour scheme, with the strapline ‘looking after you’.
Her design will fly outside the hospital to welcome visitors to the site.
Rob Anderson, director at Spire The Glen Hospital Bristol, said: “Given we are in such an iconic and busy location, the flags outside the hospital are something many people comment on – not just our visitors.
“We wanted to create a competition to encourage local school children to be creative and the designs speak for themselves!
“Choosing a winner was very difficult and we let the hospital staff decide by displaying the designs in our on-site restaurant. It was close, but we’ve got a great winner in Lilah and we are all very happy with our new flag.”
The competition was open to local primary schools and students were invited to submit their designs.
Caroline Bateson, headmistress at Redland High, said: “The children loved the competition and they got very excited about the chance to have their work displayed in public.
“Many of the children are hoping Spire run the competition again next year so they get another go.”
Lilah won a kindle Fire HD, and the school took home a signed Bristol Rugby shirt courtesy of the hospital, who sponsor the team.
