The logo was chosen by representatives from South Marston Parish Council, The Swindon Advertiser and Honda of the UK Manufacturing Ltd (who will benefit the energy generated from the project). The competition asked pupils of South Marston C of E Primary School to design a meaningful logo for the project which will be displayed on site and across information materials including the project’s website: www.sevorfarmsolar.co.uk.   

The winning entry was created by Phoebe Young who received an Apple iPad for her design. Four runners up were also named who were; Amelia Pirt, Toby Shepard, Lily Young and Jamie Blanchard, all of which received arts and craft vouchers.

Guy Madgwick, Director Eneco UK said: “We have very much enjoyed working with the children of South Marston C of E Primary School to establish an identity for our project. We look forward to showcasing the design at the site when we hold our community open day this summer. ”

The logo unveiling party also included a preview of the Sevor Farm Solar project video which has been developed with the help of six pupils of South Marston C of E Primary School and will be displayed at future Eneco events and on the Sevor Farm Solar website.
