Brooke’s love of Bilston scoops prize

Primary school pupil Brooke-Leigh Ayliffe drew on the inspiration of her home town when she designed a poster highlighting the ‘beauty of Bilston’ to scoop a prize from Wolverhampton-based logistics company Pallet-Track.

The eight-year-old from Bilston Church of England Primary was invited to Pallet-Track, in Millfields Road, on Friday, July 5, after her colourful design highlighted famous local landmarks including Major’s Fish and ‘chippy’, as part of the Express & Star’s poster competition, which was open to all of the city’s schools.

Brooke’s design captured the imagination of the Pallet-Track judges and logistics director Mark Pulford invited her for a tour of the 267,000 sq ft hub along with teaching assistant Mrs Clair.

The visit concluded with a gift from Pallet-Track.

Nigel Parkes, managing director of Pallet-Track, said: “We’d like to say a big thanks to all the schools who took part in this year’s competition. The standard of entries was very high and it was a very tough job picking a winner.

“We’d like to offer our congratulations to Brooke, whose entry was the pick of a very strong selection of pictures. We were impressed by the fact that she drew from her experience and really thought about what she liked about her home town.”
