A Lambeg drum has been painted with an image of Captain Tom and Noah’s Ark to send out a positive message about the year 2020 for many decades to come.
The design by Portadown man Keith Currie was chosen by public vote in a competition run by Lambeg painter Andy Young, who is from Richill.
Andy, who ran the competition on his Facebook page, said: “It’s just something I thought might be nice in these times, something that people could look back on in 10, 20, 30 years when they see the drum. They’ll say, ‘do you remember 2020 – that was some year’.
“It’s a bit like the tercentenary of Orange Order in 1990. There was a new symbol came out for that and a lot of the drums have that on them, and when you see the symbol it takes you back to 1990.
