STUDENT Daniel Chinn has won a competition to design a new exhibit for Coombe Country Park.

The 18-year-old who goes to Warwickshire College competed against fellow students to create an interactive exhibit for the park giving information about the park’s trees under lids made from tree barks.

And the his 7ft design was inspired by Coventry’s famous three church spires.

Daniel’s winning design was chosen by park manager Joe Taylor and furniture maker Keith Sealey. He will now work with a team from the park to bring his design to life, and also enjoy a place at the New English Workshop Summer School courtesy of furniture maker William Self.

“I got the idea to use the three spires of Coventry and at 7ft tall they will make the piece a real focal point to attract visitors,” he told The Observer.

“It’s going to take a lot of work to create it but I am looking forward to the challenge.”
