As part of Ivor Goodsite’s Hoarding Competition 2019, children at Rosecroft Primary School took part in decorating the hoarding outside our Grosvenor Park development in Attleborough.
Out of 83 entries submitted this year, Grosvenor Park was announced as one of the runners up, thanks to the vibrant display created by pupils, aged between five and seven, from Rosecroft Primary School. Ivor Goodsite’s Hoarding Competition enables children of all ages to express their artistic skills on site hoardings which become large canvases for their imaginative creations. Since it was founded in 2013, the competition has seen continued success engaging over 4,000 children and adults.
Commenting on the school’s participation in the hoarding competition, Tom Underwood, teacher at Rosecroft Primary School, said: “We take great pride in being part of a vibrant, local community in Attleborough, and Ivor Goodsite’s Hoarding Competition seemed like the perfect opportunity for the children to promote a sense of community, as well as showcase their artistic abilities. I asked them to explore the idea of ‘Rosecroft Primary School in the community’ and the work the children produced was exceptional. It’s great to see Taylor Wimpey working to encourage projects like this one.”
Caroline Carter, Sales and Marketing Director at Taylor Wimpey East Anglia, said: “We would like to say a huge thank you to all of the pupils from Rosecroft Primary School for working so hard to create a lovely display at our Grosvenor Park development. We recognise how valuable it is for young children to be involved in community projects like this one, as it gives them the chance to express their thoughts and feelings. It was our pleasure to have the children’s work displayed within the local community, on our site hoardings.”
