A Little History

EPICH Started life as Friends of the Community - Hurworth.  This name prompted more questions than it answered so in 2013 the Group decided to turn to Hurworth and Croft Primary schools for inspiration, suggesting to each they run two competitions, one for the name and one for the logo.  The winner of the logo competition was Emily Liddle from Hurworth Primary, and the winner of the name competition was Dominic Hancock from Croft Primary who came up with the acronym EPICH, “Eco People In Croft & Hurworth".  Since then, the logo has had a little updating to keep it fresh and allow it to be used in electronic media, while remaining true to Emily's original.
