Can you design a village crest?

IDENTITY: A competition could be launched to design a new crest for road signs approaching a village.

The plans were discussed at a meeting of Little Gaddesden Parish Council.

Member David Brattle said: “A crest helps you form an identity, and at the moment I do not think the village has one.”

Councillors could not decide on which organisation to ask to design the new crest, so it was suggested the public submit their ideas.

Member Louise Archer said: “We should have a competition to design the village crest.”

Councillors are now exploring whether to push ahead with the idea.
