Suggest a slogan for The Heath’s rainbow tribute and win £1,000 for your favourite charity

We have all experienced the adversities of the current pandemic, unlike anything experienced before, on an international scale.

It has brought drastic changes to the way in which we all work and live. To ensure our sustainability, The Heath Business and Technical Park has had to adapt and introduce a new environment where we can all work safely.   Great thought has gone into the process of drafting our detailed action plan, which is now being implemented. 

We’ve now got some time for reflection and learning. With this in mind, we have created a symbolic rainbow from boulders that have resided at The Heath since its construction. Our rainbow aims to remind us all in the months, years and generations ahead of the sacrifices that had to be made in this dreadful pandemic, which changed our lives so dramatically in 2020. A rainbow seemed to be the most recognisable and inclusive symbol of this turbulent time.

However, there is a crucial missing piece to our symbol.  We need an appropriate slogan which reflects the reasons we have created this memorial rainbow. Therefore, we are launching this competition for our Heath community to come up with a simple slogan, or word, that captures the essence of the experience of living through the Coronavirus pandemic. The winning slogan will be cast into the ground below our rainbow at the site entrance.

To assist with your thinking and creativity, we believe the way we will recover and learn from this period will be through a spirit of community, science, discipline and guidance. An example slogan is “Together We Overcome” which is large enough to convey a message but not too big that it wouldn’t fit neatly below our existing Stone Rainbow.

Do you have an even more inspiring idea? Our accompanying video should help to illustrate the ethos behind this symbolic project. You are also welcome to come into The Heath for a walk and to view our new rainbow — but please remember to respect social distance requirements. Our competition is open to individuals or groups.

The winner/s will be invited to the inauguration ceremony at which a commemorative flag will be unfurled. The winner will receive this flag once the UK government has reduced the threat level to level one (it was at level 3.5 on 14th May).

The owner of The Heath John Lewis MBE will also donate £1,000 to the preferred charity of the person/s with the winning entry.

Please send your slogan to: The competition closes on May 31st, 2020.
