A group of aspiring young artists are helping to make the move to our Pembroke Manor development in Hook, Hampshire, even more special for new residents.

Our West London business unit, which is currently building brand new one, two and three-bedroom apartments at Pembroke Manor, enlisted the creative talents of pupils at Hook Infant School to create ‘Welcome Home’ cards that will greet new arrivals moving to the development in July 2018. 

The young artist behind the crowning design was Eli of Starfish class, who was awarded a £30 National Book Tokens gift card. He will also receive the honour of seeing his card printed and distributed to newcomers at Pembroke Manor.

Bumblebee class’ Evie was the recipient of the second-place prize, a National Book Tokens gift card worth £20, while Kaiyoori from Ladybird class, who came third, was handed a £10 gift card.

Nikki Gibson, Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey West London, says: “I would like to say a huge thank you to all the pupils at Hook Infant School who took part in our exciting ‘Welcome Home’ Card competition.

“All the entries were fantastic and we saw lots of really inspiring designs to help make the new residents at Pembroke Manor feel right at home. Picking a winner was by no means easy but, in the end, we decided that Eli’s design would act as the perfect greeting. Well done to everyone and keep up the creativity!”

Melanie Walker, Headteacher of Hook Infant School, says: “We are very happy to have taken part in Taylor Wimpey’s ‘Welcome Home’ Card competition for their new Pembroke Manor development in Hook.

“Our pupils are also looking forward to welcoming any new children who move to the development and attend our school, which is rated as ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted.

“Eli will be delighted to see his design printed and used to welcome families to their new homes. He will enjoy spending his gift card too, as will Evie and Kaiyoori.

“I’d like to say thank you to Taylor Wimpey for including Hook Infant School in this competition, and for providing the prizes for the winners.”
