Creative arts students compete to design Farnham through their eyes
Students from the University for the Creative Arts in Farnham recently took part in a creative competition with Taylor Wimpey West London to design a piece of art that reflects “Farnham through my eyes”.
Students from the first year of the Illustration degree at the university entered the competition by creating a design of their own interpretation of the theme, which were then shared with our sales team. The first place winner was Eloise Burgin, age 18, who received a £75 Amazon voucher and has had her design printed and is currently on display in our Abbey View Ardale show home.
Taking second place was Erin Berry, age 19, and third place Megan Spencer, age 20, who also received Amazon vouchers and have had their designs printed on postcards that are currently being presented to visitors at Abbey View.
Eloise Burgin, first place winner of the competition, said: “It was a great experience to have the opportunity to take part in the the creative competition with Taylor Wimpey West London and I am so pleased to have taken first place. I took inspiration for my piece from things that stand out to me in Farnham, from people to cafes, market stalls and objects. I wanted to capture the vibrant, busy aspects of the town and bring in lots of colour and pattern to create a lively piece of work. I incorporated my own style and colours that are aesthetically pleasing to show Farnham through my eyes.”
We support young rugby players with donation to Farnham RUFC
We supported Farnham Rugby Union Football club with a donation of £1,765 towards the ‘Mini’s’ end of season awards.
The Farnham RUFC Mini’s section is one of the largest in the country and consists of seven teams of boys and girls from ages five to 11. Our donation was used to contribute towards the cost of the medals and trophies at the annual awards ceremony, which celebrates the commitment and achievements of the young players throughout the year.
Graeme Black is Chair of the Mini’s Section at Farnham RUFC. Commenting on the support from Taylor Wimpey, he said: “Farnham RUFC is in the heart of the community, supporting a range of schools and sports clubs, so to receive support back from a business such as Taylor Wimpey is fantastic. We are a volunteer led club with over 160 coaches, so we are very grateful for any help we receive. The event was a huge success and I would like to thank Taylor Wimpey on behalf of the club for helping us to celebrate our young players achievements.”
