Winning designs by local pupils aim to slow traffic at Bishopton

We challenged the Primary 5, 6 and 7 pupils of Bishopton Primary and Dargavel Primary to design a sign that could be installed near our new show homes off Craigton Drive in Dargavel Village to encourage drivers to slow down.

Colourful, safe & fun

Two winning designs - created by Lucas Diver (P6) from Bishopton Primary and Olivia Sloan, (P5) from Dargavel Primary –have been recreated as signs that are now installed near the entrance to our latest phase of new homes. Each winner also won a £50 book token.

The overall standard of designs was so high that a further six posters were chosen to create a banner for our show area car park to remind drivers to keep their speed down whilst moving around the area. Each child also received a £20 book token.

The children at both primary schools rose to the challenge with lots of pupils taking part as Louise Chisholm, Depute Head Teacher at Dargavel Primary comments: “Having the opportunity to work with Taylor Wimpey to create speed signs has been an exciting challenge but a great way to deliver a very important message.”

Catherine Davidson, Depute Head Teacher from Bishopton Primary adds: “This is a lovely connection between our schools and the local Taylor Wimpey development at Dargavel Village. The children all really enjoyed tackling their brief to create a bold and colourful design and we are very proud of their efforts.”
