Stevenage schoolboy wins Women’s Tour design competition

16 Jun 2015

Almond Hill Primary School pupil, Theo Thompson, will this Saturday present his personally designed jersey to the Stage 4 winner of the Aviva Women’s Tour in Stevenage.  

Stevenage Mayor, Cllr Howard Burrell, joined Theo, 11, at his school today to present him with his own jersey, which features his winning design.

Last month Stevenage Borough Council asked schoolchildren around the town to design the stage winner’s jersey. Theo’s design beat hundreds of entries to be crowned the winner, and on Saturday he’ll get the chance to stand on the winner’s podium among some of the world’s best female cyclists, presenting his jersey to the stage 4 winner.

Stevenage Mayor, Cllr Howard Burrell said, “The fact we had hundreds of brilliant designs from schoolchildren all across Stevenage shows how much excitement there is for the Aviva Women’s Tour to come to our town. I’m pleased to be able to show Theo his design today and am looking forward to seeing him presenting it to the winner on Saturday.”

Mrs Lovelock, Head Teacher at Almond Hill Primary School said, “Everyone in the school is excited that so many cyclists will be racing past our school on Saturday. All the pupils have been gearing up the big race and I’m very proud that someone from our school won the design competition.”
