WM  Lodge Farm School  Poster Competition 2  web

We invited children at Lodge Farm Junior and Mixed Infant School in Willenhall, West Midlands, to create their own posters for a Walk to School poster competition.

The pupils’ posters focus on encouraging drivers to slow down, and in recognition of their efforts, we donated 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place prizes of gift vouchers for the competition winners.

Elaine Taylor, Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey West Midlands, says: “We are committed to supporting the communities in which we build our high-quality new homes, which is why we invited pupils at Lodge Farm Junior and Mixed Infant School to take part in our poster competition.

“Walking to school can make a real difference to children’s health and wellbeing, but we understand why some parents have concerns about traffic and speeding. I’d like to congratulate all of the children who took part for creating such fantastic designs!”

The pupil whose design was judged the best secured £25 in gift vouchers, while second prize was a £15 gift voucher and third a £10 gift voucher.

Stella Porter, headteacher at Lodge Farm Junior and Mixed Infant School, says: “We encourage the children to walk to school to promote a healthier lifestyle. We were delighted to accept Taylor Wimpey’s challenge to design posters and were really pleased with pupils’ designs.”

Our Spring Walk development in Willenhall currently features a choice of two and three-bedroom houses, plus a selection of two-bedroom apartments.
