Perranporth Naming Competition web

Schoolchildren have been given the honour of naming our new housing development in Perranporth, Cornwall.

The pupils at Perranporth Community Primary School were asked to suggest names for the development of around 120 new homes off Liskey Hill and the winning suggestion was Parc Hendrawna.

‘Parc’ means ‘park or field’, while four children suggested the name Hendrawna, after Hendrawna Lane, which is the old track leading from Perranporth to Bolingey and runs close to the school. The four pupils – Alice Judge, Nathan Williams, Perran Dunbar and Tia Brand – each received a £10 book token, while we gave a further £50 book token to the school.

Janine Copleston, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey, says: “The children at Perranporth Community Primary School came up with some great ideas for what we should call our new development in the town and we were delighted with the suggestion Parc Hendrawna.

“We’d like to say a huge thank you to the children and the staff at the school for their hard work and creativity!”

The book tokens were given as prizes to mark the 17th annual World Book Day, which took place on Thursday 6th March to celebrate authors, illustrators and books, and to get more children reading.
