We fly the flag for a local primary school in Holytown

We recently challenged Primary 6 pupils of Holytown Primary School to design a flag to welcome our customers and visitors to the sales information centre and show homes for our local Torrance Place development.

And the winner is...

The winning flag design by Rosie McDougall has been produced into a flag that now proudly flies at the entrance to the development to provide a warm and colourful welcome to everyone visiting.

Rosie won a £50 book voucher, and recently visited the development to see her flag in situ. The standard of the entries was so high that seven additional entries were also chosen to form part of additional signage at the development to welcome visitors, and each child received a £15 book voucher.

The children at Holytown Primary enjoyed rising to the challenge of this fun competition as Laura Alcorn, Head Teacher adds: “Participating in the Taylor Wimpey competition to design a flag for their new housing development was an exciting opportunity for our children.  The children enjoyed tackling their brief to create a bold and colourful design, and I understand the judges found it hard to choose a winner due to the high standard of entries from Primary 6.  The flag looks great, and it is a lovely connection between our school and the local Taylor Wimpey development at Torrance Place.”
