A PICTURE drawn by a six-year-old boy is to be used by a housing association to celebrate its 120th anniversary.

Durham Aged Mineworkers’ Homes Association invited children at Cestria Primary School in Chester-le-Street to design a anniversary logo to mark the milestone.

Six-year-old Oliver Johnson winning design features a miners’ head lamp illuminating the words ‘Durham Aged Mineworkers’ Homes Association’, with ‘120th Anniversary’ running along the bottom.

His design will association’s website, used in the summer edition of its residents’ magazine and on a banner which will be paraded at the Durham Miners’ Gala.

Oliver has had his logo framed and received a £10 book voucher while the school has been given £120 to to buy books.

Year two teacher Jayne Behenna said: “The children did some research at home and school before starting their designs and they should all be very proud of what they have achieved.

“We would like to thank DAMHA for inviting us to take part in the competition and for their kind donation.”
