Creative children from a primary school in Brackley have declared their love for the Northamptonshire market town in a competition.
We teamed up with Bracken Leas Primary School to launch a competition to sing the praises of Brackley.
Pupils taking part in the ‘What Brackley Means to Me’ contest were encouraged to design posters expressing their admiration for the town, with the winning entries having the honour of being displayed in the Sales Centre at our Earls Manor development in the town.
A colourful entry by Year 5 pupil Molly was chosen as the winning work of art, while Year 6 children Poppy and Year 4 Grace came second and third, respectively.
Molly was presented with a £50 gift voucher by Taylor Wimpey East Midlands Sales Manager Nick Upex during a special assembly at the school, with Poppy winning a £30 voucher and Grace a £10 voucher.
Mariana Knight, Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey East Midlands, says: “We already know that Brackley is a fantastic place to live, but the pupils from Bracken Leas Primary 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 top three, and I’d like to congratulate everybody who took part.”
