Local Designer Takes National Award

Greenmeadows primary school pupil Charlotte Field has designed a tool that has a tracking device, a knife and fork, a petfood dispenser, lip gloss – even a television.

The colour and creativity of the design caught the attention of competition creator and iconic multi-took designer, Tim Leatherman, who is celebrating his invention’s 35th anniversary by travelling the world.

The nationwide school competition called ‘Design a Leatherman’, involved school aged children creating their own design, featuring all the gadgets and tools they need in their daily life.

Charlotte took out the junior competition with Leatherman selecting her as the winner himself.
