School pupils took up the challenge of designing a new flag for a Blackpool-based firm.

Lytham Hall Park Primary School pupils spent hours designing a flag to fly above Jubilee House, the former 1960s Land Registry building on the edge of Lytham Green, which is set to become the new headquarters of Danbro Accounting Solutions next year.

Lucy King, six, (pictured) charmed judges with larger than life birds, bees, butterflies and dog walkers, against the backdrop of Lytham windmill.

She said: “The windmill is famous so I included it.

“And lots of green for grass. Dogs really love Lytham Green so I put In a dog walker and quite a big dog.

“I have a cat but you don’t see cats on Lytham Green.

“I will look up and see the flag flying and say – I did that.”

Spencer Unsworth, 10, Anya Jackson, seven, Emily Turpie, 10, and Alexandria Matthews, nine, also won praise for their colourful creations.

Prizes were presented at the South Park school’s assembly by Helen Broughton, who founded Danbro in the front room of her south Fylde home in 1999 – with husband Damian.

Conlon Construction is already flying a flag at the site but the honour of designing a special flag for Danbro fell to local children.

Helen, director of people and standards, said: “Lytham Hall Park came up trumps and we had a number of great designs.

“It took us ages to choose.

“The panel chose Lucy’s design because it was fun, bright and clearly depicted Lytham Green life.

“We want our employees to be part of that life when we move to Jubilee House.”
