Taylor Wimpey - Saxon Fields - Tiger bedroom competition WEB

Two Biggleswade eight-year-olds have created some terrrrific designs for a brand new showhome at our Saxon Fields development in the town!

Daisy Jai Kelly and Elliot Axell took inspiration from the Amur tigers at Woburn Safari Park – which are sponsored by us – to come up with their ideas for the new tiger-themed bedroom.

Daisy Jai designed a leafy jungle habitat complete with stripy rug and animal print bedding, while Elliot created a fabulous tiger bed as the centrepiece for his room.

Their designs have been combined by expert interior designer Amie Reeves from Show Business Interiors to create a fun and functional children’s bedroom in our new ‘Langdale’ showhome at Saxon Fields.

Daisy Jai and Elliot were treated to a tour of the showhome at a special visit to our development on Saturday 17th October, when they were also presented with their winning prizes – four tickets to Woburn Safari Park each – as well as meeting the Taylor Tiger mascot.

Daisy Jai says: “It was really good fun creating the design. When I heard that I’d won it felt amazing – me and my sister are so excited!”

“It was really nice to see my drawing made real,” adds Elliot. “I liked the different tigers.”

Christine Scarborough, Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey North Thames, says: “We were delighted with the entries we received for our tiger-themed design competition. It was incredibly hard to judge, but both Daisy Jai and Elliot’s designs were particularly impressive.

“The new tiger-themed bedroom makes a fabulous focal point for our new ‘Langdale’ showhome, which is set to be a big hit with our younger visitors!”

We have teamed up with Woburn Safari Park to sponsor its tiger house, which is home to four Amur tigers from the European Endangered Species Program. This pioneering partnership was launched in 2014 and earlier this year we renewed our support, pledging to sponsor the tiger enclosure for the next three years.

There’s a superb selection of three and four-bedroom homes currently available at Saxon Fields.
