Lady Cathcart Nursery logo design winner Amy Smith

Buckie’s newest nursery has a new identity, thanks to the winner of a competition to design the new logo for Lady Cathcart.

Amy Smith, originally from Buckie, visited the nursery to be presented with a certificate of thanks from the children.

Now an architect splitting her time between her business, PaQ Design, in Aberdeen and Buckie, Amy has fond memories of school discos at Lady Cathcart and is delighted to have her design chosen to represent the Nursery: “Having spent so much of my youth at after school clubs, sports activities and the odd disco at Lady Cathcart, about 20 years ago, I was excited to see this opportunity to design the new logo come up.

“It’s great that the building is being fully utilised again and the refurbished nursery has a fantastic set-up. It’s an honour to have a little piece of me incorporated into the nursery with the logo and the future of Lady Cathcart seems very positive for Buckie.”

Nursery Manager, Gilli Hearns, said of the logo: “We’re delighted to have a bright and contemporary design for our new logo. The children appreciated the bright colours of the rainbow and the sea and the design links Lady Cathcart nursery to the heritage of Buckie perfectly.”

The winning logo competition entry was chosen by the children in Lady Cathcart Nursery, Minister for Children and Young People, Maree Todd MSP, and ELC staff from a selection of 14 entries.

Famous for its colony of dolphins, fabulous beaches and more malt whisky distilleries than any where else in Scotland, Moray is a thriving area and a great place to live. Nestling between Aberdeenshire and the Highlands, Moray stretches from Tomintoul in the south to the shores of the Moray Firth, from Keith in the east to Brodie Castle in the west.
