Young residents at our Stoneley Park development in Crewe recently rose to the challenge of designing a street sign to encourage residents and visitors to drive carefully through the development. 


The competition, which saw the winner gifted a family games hamper as a reward, received numerous entries with conscientious residents on the development wanting to play their part in keeping their streets safe.


Six-year-old Nancy Ball, student of Monks Coppenhall Academy, was crowned the winner thanks to her eye-catching design which has now been erected in six different locations throughout the development.


Erin Piazza, Nancy’s mum, comments: “Nancy was absolutely delighted when she heard she won the street sign competition and as her mum I really couldn’t be prouder!


“Nancy loves anything creative and spent a lot of time during lockdown being crafty, particularly colouring. She was so excited when the competition arrived and spent a lot of time planning her design so that it was clear for drivers.


“Nancy really wanted her design to encourage drivers to be safe around the development and by using a red car she thought it would stand out on the sign – we hope it has the desired effect and are looking forward to seeing Nancy’s artwork around Stoneley Park.”


Stoneley Park has a selection of two-, three- and four-bedroom homes, offering something for buyers at each stage of the property ladder. For families with children, a selection of primary and secondary schools with recent Ofsted ratings of ‘good’ and ‘outstanding’ can be found nearby.


Stuart Craig, sales and marketing director for Taylor Wimpey North West, adds: “Firstly, I just want to say a huge congratulations to Nancy, her design is fantastic, and she is an incredibly worthy winner.


“It is clear an awful lot of time and effort went into her street sign and I am delighted to say it is now up and visible around the development as a brilliant reminder to keep speed down when driving.


“Well done again Nancy, we hope you enjoy the games hamper!”
