Flag design challenge

We challenged the Primary 5, 6 and 7 pupils of Abbey Primary School in Kilwinning to design a flag to mark the launch of the sales information centre at our Willow Gardens development in Kilwinning.

The winning flag design by Primary 7 pupil Leah McCalman, has been produced into a flag that now flies at the entrance to the development to welcome new visitors, existing customers and homeowners alike. Leah won a £50 voucher and the opportunity to visit the development to see her flag in-situ at the development.

The standard of the entries was so high that judges also awarded runner-up prizes to Sophia McDonald and Esmee Taggart who each received a £15 voucher and whose designs also form part of additional signage at the development to welcome visitors.

Winner of flag competition

The children at Abbey Primary rose to the challenge of this fun competition as Andrew Falconer, Principal Teacher at Abbey Primary School comments: “Having the opportunity to work with Taylor Wimpey to design a flag to welcome new visitors to their local development in Kilwinning has been an unusual challenge. The children enjoyed tackling the brief to create a bold and colourful design. Leah’s flag now flies every day, which is a lovely connection between our school and the local Taylor Wimpey development at Willow Gardens.”

Audrey Ross, Sales and Marketing Director 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 Abbey Primary on this project to strengthen and extend our links once again with the local community of Kilwinning.”
