CREATIVE Droitwich brothers chose the names for the life-sized mascots who made their debuts in performances by Lighthouse Street Puppets during Salt Fest.

Lilly Lido and Sidney Salt were given their names by Christian and Joshua Tanner and the brothers were honoured for their efforts with a prize from Droitwich mayor Coun Anne Taft.

Coun Taft presented the duo with a great photo of them with the mascots thanks to Michael Neil Photography at the puppet show which was held as part of a packed weekend of events.

Lilly and Sidney came to life thanks to grants given to Lighthouse Street Puppets by Wychavon District Council and Droitwich Spa Town Council.
