Chilton Polden schoolboy wins design competition

ARTWORK produced by a 10-year-old boy from Chilton Polden is set to feature on a Covid-19 memorial stone at several crematoria in the South West including Sedgemoor.

Jake Insall is pictured holding his design which won a competition run by the Westerleigh Group.

The design will be etched onto a stone obelisk forming the centre-piece of their gardens.

He said: “I chose a rainbow because it has been used a lot during Covid to represent hope. The hand that comes through the rainbow represents a person who has been lost and the hand that is coming over the rainbow is a person who is still alive.

“Holding hands, they are still connected and in some way still together.”
