Congratulations to schoolgirl Millie Barber, whose tribute to Woburn Sands’ war memorial saw her win our recent ‘What My Town Means to Me’ competition.

Fulbrook Middle School pupil Millie (10) drew a picture of the town’s war memorial and wrote a piece about what it means to her.

She says: “The war memorial brings back memories of people who have tried their best in war and may not have made it. It also gives us the chance to respect the citizens in the local area.

“My picture is quite detailed and it took me quite a while to draw. I’m really pleased to be the winner.”

Fiona Bishop, PA to the headteacher at Fulbrook Middle School, says: “As a school, we always try to get involved with the local community as much as possible, and a lot of our pupils took part in this competition. We’re very proud of Millie for being named the winner.”

Steve Rolt, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey, says: “We were very impressed by Millie’s competition entry and felt she was an extremely worthy winner. 

“Millie’s excellent work will take pride of place in the Sales Centre at our Parklands development and I’m sure property-seekers who visit will be as impressed by her thoughtful picture and words as we were.”

We’re currently building new homes at our Parklands development in Woburn Sands.
