Name the building and be a winner

Published Saturday, 06 July 2013

Children from five local primary schools in the Enfield Lock area, cub packs and brownies are being invited to enter a competition to name the Joint Service Centre planned for Ordnance Road.

This unique building will bring together a new library, community hall, doctors’ and dentists’ surgeries.

Contractors, Grahams, are preparing the site and soon signs will be erected to show and explain the progress as the project gets started.

The children aged eight and nine are being asked to come up with a name that chimes with the building for residents and its surroundings.

Cllr Christine Hamilton, Enfield Council’s Cabinet Member for Community Safety, Wellbeing and Public Health, said, “This building will provide essential services for this area. This is an investment that will make peoples’ lives much better. Now we are looking forward to finding a name that captures what this building means and I am sure that we shall have some exciting entries.”

The name must: create a sense of belonging; have lasting meaning for residents; reflect the services and be appropriate for generations to come.

Grahams are contributing a prize and the winning class or group will also be involved in the opening ceremony and any other appropriate activities during the construction period.

Entries for the competition must be in by 5pm on Monday 24 June. A judging panel of local councillors and representatives from the NHS and Kettering Hall will announce the winner before schools break up for the summer holidays.
