Taylor Wimpey East Scotland flies the flag for local Dunbar Primary School
Taylor Wimpey East Scotland challenged the Primary 6 pupils of Dunbar Primary School to design a flag to mark the launch of its latest phase of new homes at its Albany Grange development in Dunbar.
The winning design by Primary 6 pupil, Kyla Doyle, has been produced into a flag that now flies at the entrance to the development to welcome new visitors, existing customers and homeowners alike. Kyla won a £50 cinema voucher, a framed copy of her winning design and the opportunity to visit the development with the five classmates to see the flag flying high at the entrance to the development.
The judges also picked five other commended flag designs who were awarded a £15 voucher each and a framed copy of their design.
The whole year group of children from Primary 6 rose to the challenge of this fun competition as Jaclyn Eeles, Depute Head Teacher at Dunbar Primary School adds: “Having the opportunity to work with Taylor Wimpey to design a flag to welcome new visitors to their local development in Dunbar has been an unusual challenge. The children enjoyed tackling their brief to create a bold and colourful design, and I understand the judges found it hard to choose a winner due to the quality of all the designs entered. Kyla’s flag now flies every day, which is a lovely connection between our school and the local Taylor Wimpey development at Albany Grange.”
Kirsty McGill, Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey East Scotland said: “We recognise the importance of making sure that we support the communities in which we build our new homes. It has been our pleasure to work with Dunbar Primary on this project to strengthen and extend our links once again with the local community of Dunbar.”

Dunbar Primary School 'Walk to School'
Once again we are supporting Walk to School Month, an annual initiative held in October that aims to promote healthy living. The initiative also aims to reduce levels of traffic and make roads safer for all.
With the evenings drawing in as the darker months approach, we have handed over 400 high-visibility snap bands to Dunbar Primary School – Lochend Campus to help keep pupils safe on their way to and from school.
The donation forms part of a national Taylor Wimpey scheme to supply more than 14,900 snap bands to schoolchildren all across the country.
Kirsty McGill, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey East Scotland, says: “We are thrilled to be supporting Walk to School again this year and are proud to be working with Primary 1-3 at Dunbar Primary School to encourage families to realise the benefits of leaving the car keys at home.
“Walking to school is a fantastic way for children to get active and we hope they enjoy using our snap bands to help keep them safe on the journey.”
Helen Gillanders, Head Teacher at Dunbar Primary School, says: “As well as promoting a healthy lifestyle to students, walking to school is also a huge help in reducing the volume of traffic outside school, thereby making the area safer for all.
“On behalf of Primary 1, 2 and 3, I would like to say a big thank you to Taylor Wimpey for this donation and for their help in raising awareness of Walk to School Month among our pupils and their parents.”
