We installed a railway safety sign designed by Barrow URC Primary School

We have teamed up with pupils of Barrow URC Primary School in Barrow, Lancashire to design a railway safety sign, which has been installed along the footpath adjacent to our Clover Meadows development

Creating safe spaces in our community

The initiative asked pupils to design a sign that would bring awareness to the railway line to ensure that pedestrians cross it safely. 

The deserved winner was 9-year-old Charlie who received a £50 book voucher and got to see his drawing brought to life at Clover Meadows.

Commenting on the children’s participation in the competition, Nicola McArdle, Headteacher at Barrow URC Primary School, said: “The staff and pupils at our school take great pride in being a part of the vibrant local community in Barrow. We were all delighted to be chosen to enter Taylor Wimpey’s competition and have the opportunity to raise awareness of railway safety. We have a large number of creative students who worked incredibly hard on their entries and we’re very proud of everyone who participated in the competition!”

Jennifer Burns,  Sales and Marketing Director at Taylor Wimpey North West, said: “We love giving local children the chance to be part of our developments and we were pleased to see Barrow URC Primary School’s pupils getting involved with our railway safety sign design competition. All the entries were fantastic and we saw lots of really inspiring designs. Picking a winner was by no means easy but, in the end, we decided that Charlie’s design made the perfect sign. Well done to everyone and keep up the creativity!”
