YOUNG artists are being encouraged to get involved with a village plan project by entering a logo design competition.

The Melbourn village plan aims to give village a say on shaping the future of the village. The project has been progressing considerably over the last few months, and the steering committee are now looking for a logo for the plan.

Artists under the age of 16 who live in the village can enter, and prizes will be on offer for the best entries in two age groups; 4 - 10 years and 11 - 16 years.

The steering group are also appealing for more adult volunteers to get involved with the project, as they prepare to issue a second questionnaire later this year.

John Travis, village plan chairman, said: "This signals our intent to make Melbourn resident's ideas a reality.

"We had an excellent response to the initial survey, and hope that even more residents will complete the next stage of our research - a questionnaire that will be sent to all households and businesses in the parish - and therefore play a significant part in the foundation of the overall plan for Melbourn over the next 5-10 years."
