School pupils compete in flag design competition for our new Ryhope development

Children at Ryhope Junior School have taken part in a competition to design a flag to welcome visitors to our Burdon Fields development in Ryhope.

Flying the flag

We challenged pupils to put their creative skills to the test and design a flag, with the winner having their design come to life and installed at the site. The winner, Molly, 10, also received a £50 voucher as a prize. 

Fiona Lynn, Headteacher at Ryhope Junior School, said: “We want to thank Taylor Wimpey for asking us to be a part of this fantastic competition. Everyone is so proud of Molly, we all had a great time taking part and we are thrilled to see Molly’s design on display.”

Sarah Northcott, Sales and Marketing Director at Taylor Wimpey North East, said: “We are so delighted to have worked with Ryhope Junior School for this competition. We loved receiving the entries and it is fantastic to see Molly’s winning design now flying high over our Burdon Fields development.

“We are committed to supporting the communities in which we build, it is so important to cultivate and nurture our communities, as well as finding new and exciting ways to collaborate with the local area. Everyone at Taylor Wimpey North East sends their congratulations to Molly for her brilliant flag.”
