A Fylde Coast schoolboy has got his name up in lights promoting an important environmental message.

Louie Brooks, 10, from Shakespeare Primary School in Fleetwood, won a special competition to design a brand new Blackpool Illuminations display promoting the message of keeping our seas clean.

His design was picked out from among entries from schools across the Fylde coast by the Illuminations curator Laurence Llewellyn-Bowen.

Louie’s design was praised for its simple yet clear message, which simply states: “Keep our coasts clean”.

The competition was held by the Fylde Peninsula Water Management Group, a partnership made up of Blackpool, Wyre and Fylde councils.
