Our West Scotland region challenged the pupils of Bishopton Primary School to design a flag to mark the launch of our latest phase of new homes at Dargavel Village, Bishopton.
The winning design by primary 7 pupil, Sophie Bandoni, aged 11, has been produced into a flag that now flies at the entrance to the development to welcome new visitors, existing customers and homeowners alike. Sophie also won a £50 cinema voucher for her winning design.
The inspiration for the competition followed our donation of a flagpole to the school when they asked for our help when they won the Sport Scotland Award flag and had no means to fly it!
Children across all year groups were involved in this fun competition as Stephen Collins, Deputy Headteacher of Bishopton Primary School adds: “Giving our children the opportunity to work with Taylor Wimpey to design a flag that would welcome new visitors to the Dargavel Village was an unusual challenge that allowed our children to demonstrate their creativity whilst having fun – with some amazing results.
“There was a real sense of pride when we took some of the children involved along to the development to reveal the winner, and now the flag flies every day which is a lovely connection between our school at Taylor Wimpey’s development at Dargavel Village.”
Audrey Ross, Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey West Scotland said: “We recognise the importance of making sure that we support the communities in which we build our new homes. It has been our pleasure to work with Bishopton Primary School on this project to strengthen and extend our links once again with the local community of Bishopton.
“We have been proudly building new homes across the UK since 1880, and we are still committed to supporting the new communities where we build new homes, just like Dargavel Village where the development is coming to life as a wide range of buyers make their move to call this home.”
