spoke about the logo, and the suggestion was a space theme.  The logo must be easy to recreate.  JA
will consult with an artist friend.
to promote the project it was decided to use space hoppers as it links in with
the space project theme, its retro, it needs space to play on it, its active,
and it’s colourful and fun.  It was
decided to put out space hoppers in key strategic places, and for activities to
be held around space hoppers, for example space hopper races.   An action point is to work out the costings
of space hoppers.
