An Alnwick supermarket wants youngsters to design a mascot for the store.

Morrisons has launched the competition this week and is looking for children in the area to come up with a winning design.

There are no guidelines or prescriptive rules for what the mascot should be or look like as long as it reflects the Morrisons store in Alnwick.

The contest is open to children aged five to 12, who should create their design on A4 paper and can get creative and use any medium – from paint to pencil, pastel to chalk.

The child’s name, age, address, school name and a contact telephone number should be written on the back of the sheet of paper and returned to the store’s customer service desk.

The competition is open now and the closing date for entries is Friday, May 13.

During the competition, entries will be displayed in the store so that shoppers can see what has been put forward.

The first prize is £100-worth of equipment for the winning child’s school while their picture will be framed and hung in store.

Not only that, but the mascot will be created to their design, with one going into the Alnwick store and the other going to the winner.

Last November, Morrisons in Alnwick underwent a refit, with the store layout revamped and upgraded. It followed the resurfacing of the car park.
