Children are being invited to rise to the occasion to help celebrate the forthcoming visit of the Tall Ships Regatta to Blyth.
Miller Homes is holding a drawing competition for youngsters to design a colourful flag which will be turned into a full-size flag to be raised to the top of a flagpole at Miller Homes’ Portland Wynd development in Blyth.
The winner will also receive a flag of their own to take home.
Designs should be bright and eye-catching and welcome the Regatta into Blyth, whether it’s a sketch of a Tall Ship, a drawing of Blyth’s favourite attractions, including the beach huts, or their own take on what their dream ship would look like.
The Regatta is being hosted at the Port of Blyth from August 26 to 29.
Andrew Somerville, Miller Homes North East’s regional sales manager, said: “The upcoming visit from the Tall Ships Regatta is fantastic for the region and is already generating a lot of excitement.
“As our Portland Wynd development is so close to the coast and the Port of Blyth, we wanted to get the local community involved in helping us to mark this occasion in a special way.
“The flag which will be created from the winning design of our children’s drawing competition will be proudly raised at Portland Wynd to welcome the Regatta, and will be seen by the thousands of people heading to the coast to be a part of this fantastic event in the region.
“We’re really looking forward to seeing all of the entries.”
Entry forms are available to collect from participating Miller Homes North East sales offices, which are open Mondays from 12.30pm to 5.30pm and Thursdays to Sundays from 10.30am to 5.30pm.
Completed entry forms should be returned to any of the participating developments’ sales offices by 5pm on Monday, August 1. The winner will be notified no later than Friday, August 5.
