Creative children from a school in Calverton, Nottinghamshire, have declared their love for their home town in a competition held by our East Midlands team.
We teamed up with Manor Park Infant and Nursery School to launch a competition to sing the praises of the town.
Pupils taking part in the ‘What Calverton Means to Me’ challenge were encouraged to design posters expressing their admiration for where they live and showing what makes the town great, with the winners being presented with book tokens for their efforts.
A creative entry by pupil Sienna Justice was chosen as the overall winning work of art, while the runners-up were Elliot Kincaid and Leo Green.
Sienna was presented with a £20 gift voucher, and runners up Elliot and Leo were awarded with £15 and £10 vouchers respectively.
In addition to providing prizes for the winners, we also donated £300 to the Manor Park Infant and Nursery School for an outside story telling area.
Tim Fennell, teacher at Manor Park Infant and Nursery School, says: “We’d like to thank Taylor Wimpey for organising this competition, and for their generous donation. The children really enjoyed coming up with their own ideas about what makes Calverton great and we were really impressed with the work they put into their entries.”
Lucie Grundy, Sales Manager for Taylor Wimpey East Midlands, says: “We already know that Calverton is a fantastic place to live – as the success of our nearby development The Brambles has shown – but the pupils from Manor Park Infant and Nursery School have really opened our eyes to even more things which make it such a great town.
“We were so impressed with all the children’s competition entries that it was a very difficult task to select the winners, and I’d like to congratulate everybody who took part.”
There’s currently a superb selection of two, three and four-bedroom houses and two-bedroom apartments available at The Brambles.
