For the new LP1 we ran a school design competition asking for something that reflected the Battle of Lewes. We received a number of wonderful designs and in the end had to go for the one that best fitted into the overall layout of the note.
The winner is Millie Long from Lewes Old Grammar School. We think her shield laid over a map of the battle area is very stylish and reflects both history and locality. Congratulations to her and many thanks to all the other young people who took part. Millie, along with her art teacher Miss Abis and the chair of the board of governors at LOGS Michael Chartier, came to the mayor’s parlour at the town hall on 28th to receive her winner’s certificate, as well as a collection of all the new notes.
