The completed bird boxes will now be displayed in the show home gardens at four of our developments: Gwel yr Ynys in Sully, The Grange in Newton, Edlogan Wharf in Sebastopol, and Clare Garden Village in Cowbridge. 

Tom Davies-Lyons, Head of the Eco-Council at Sully Primary, said: “We were delighted when Taylor Wimpey approached us about doing this activity. Members of the Eco-Council at Sully Primary School thoroughly enjoyed taking part in the competition to design bird boxes for the new development. 
Sara Taylor, Sales and Marketing Director at Taylor Wimpey South Wales, said: “We would like to say a huge thank you to all of the participating primary schools for getting involved with our competition - they did a fantastic job! We’re always looking for new and innovative ways to involve the local community in our developments so we can’t wait to see the completed bird boxes on display very soon.”
