All hands together as creative CRS workers design new logo

Date Released - 16/05/2018

THREE Tameside Council workers who help vulnerable residents turned creative to win a design competition.

The council’s Community Response Service (CRS) held the in-house contest to create a new logo to be used to promote the service.

CRS helps vulnerable residents live independently in their own homes. It offers a range of technology and equipment, such as personal alarms linked to a 24-hour response centre and health monitoring devices, which help people with disabilities and long-term conditions stay safe.

Service Co-ordinator Kelly Claxton and Operational Support staff Gemma Hyde and Liam Hayes teamed together to win the contest with a clever and distinctive design.

It incorporates the outline of a house to signify the service is home-based and helping hands in the shape of a heart to show its ethos of people working together in the heart of the community with empathy and a personal touch.

The trio said they were delighted to win and are looking forward to seeing their design used in future promotional materials.

The Civic Mayor of Tameside, Cllr Joyce Bowerman, and her Consort, Mr Fred Bowerman presented them with a prize in the Mayor’s Parlour.

Cllr Bowerman said: “I think the logo is excellent as it shows exactly what the CRS does, going into homes and looking after people with a lot of love. The work they do is fantastic.”
