Aliyah shines with her design in competition to promote our markets across the district

Pupil Aliyah Robbens has thanked market traders after her special design won a prize.

Her impressive art work is now to be showcased across the district.

East Lindsey District Council asked pupils at Grimoldby Primary School to draw a picture of their local market which could be displayed on the side of the council’s market vans, alongside the times and locations of each market.

Aliyah, aged six, along with Fernando Horry, was chosen as a winner by local market traders.

Aliyah’s colourful design showed traders selling produce on a stall.

She was presented with prizes for her hard work and creativity.

Coun Craig Leyland, the district council’s Portfolio Holder for Economic Regeneration, praised her.

He said: “I would like to thank all the students who took part in this competition and the traders for kindly donating prizes.

“The council is working hard to raise the profile of our markets and in doing so hope to create a new buzz in our market towns that not only benefits traders, but shops and shoppers themselves.”

Aliyah is pictured with market trader Tina Saunby-Gray, Markets Manager Esther Belton and market trader Linda Herdman.

Her mum Lisa Robbens said: “I would like to thank the stall holders for their kind gifts they gave Aliyah for winning the competion.”

Louth market is held on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. There will be an extra market in Louth on Sunday, December 16, from 10am to 4pm.
