Tamerton Foliot school pupil names new development

Date: Tuesday 02 April 2019


We have recently thanked a school pupil for choosing the name of its new development in Tamerton Foliot, just outside of Plymouth. As part of a naming competition hosted at Mary Dean's Primary School, 11 year-old Finley Court chose Copleston Heights as the name inspired by the Copleston Oak, an historic tree based by St Mary’s Church.

To thank him for coming up with such a creative name for the new development, Finley was presented with a goody bag and certificate.

Copleston Heights will launch on 22nd June 2019, providing a range of three, four and six-bedroom homes on the outskirts of Plymouth for first time buyers and growing families alike. As part of our £168,000 education contribution to Plymouth City Council, they will also help fund a new classroom at Mary Dean's Primary School.

Finley, who is now a Year 7 pupil at Eggbuckland Community College, said: “I’m really pleased to have won the competition to name the new development in Tamerton Foliot. I chose Copleston Heights because of the historic background of the Copleston Oak and the tree is one of the first things you see as you enter the village, and I’m really happy that Taylor Wimpey decided to go with it.”

Melissa Langton, Sales and Marketing Director at Taylor Wimpey Exeter, said: “Ensuring that our developments recognise the history and heritage of the local area where possible is very important to us. With this in mind, Copleston Heights seemed like the perfect name for our new development opening soon in Tamerton Foliot and we’re very thankful to Finley for coming up with such a creative name.”
