Creative children from a school in Leighton Buzzard have declared their love for the Bedfordshire market town as part of a fun-filled competition we organised.
We teamed up with Brooklands Middle School – which is near to our Billington Grove development in the town – to launch a competition to sing the praises of Leighton Buzzard.
Pupils taking part in the ‘What Leighton Buzzard 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 Billington Grove Sales Centre.
A creative entry by Year 8 pupil Abigail Kirk was chosen as the overall winning work of art, while the winners for each year group were Josh McCormick (Year 6), Hana Cox (Year 7) and James Silversides (Year 8).
Abigail was presented with a £40 art and craft voucher during a visit to the development, with Josh, Hana and James each winning a £20 voucher.
Annabel Ashwell, Director of Art at Brooklands Middle School, says: “We’d like to thank Taylor Wimpey for organising this competition. The children really enjoyed the opportunity to come up with their own ideas about Leighton Buzzard and we were really impressed with the work they put into their entries.”
Steve Rolt, Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey South Midlands, says: “We already know that Leighton Buzzard is a fantastic place to live, but the pupils from Brooklands Middle 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 winners, and I’d like to congratulate everybody who took part.”
There’s a choice of high-quality three and four-bedroom homes currently on sale at Billington Grove.
