Following a greetings card design competition with David Wilson Homes, an imaginative pupil from Church End Lower School in Marston Moretaine is spreading joy to new residents at the homebuilder’s Marston Fields development.
As part of a ‘Welcome Home’ campaign, David Wilson Homes reached out to the school nearby its Torry Orchard site for the help of the pupils in designing greeting cards to be handed out to new homebuyers.
Joey Rice, in Year 4, was the winner of the competition and alongside claiming a £25 book token will see his printed cards distributed to all residents at Marston Fields.
Brian Storey, Head Teacher at Church End Lower School, said: “It was great to be part of David Wilson Homes’ Welcome Home design competition and we’re very proud of the entries submitted by the children.
“We hope to be doing some welcoming of our own once the children of the families moving into Marston Fields join us here at Church End Lower School.”
The scheme aims to provide a warm welcome to those making a fresh start during Christmas and the New Year, whilst also highlighting key information about the local area.
The theme of the county-wide competition for schools is all things home related and the children are encouraged to be as creative as possible and to add in pictures and details about the suburb they live in.
Jason Hearn, Sales Director at David Wilson Homes South Midlands, said: “It’s important to us to make new residents feel welcome as they join our new communities, and we’re thankful to Joey and the pupils of Church End Lower School for helping us to do just that.
“This time of year is a great opportunity for greetings cards to be distributed and receiving a personal message from a local school pupil will really put a smile on the faces of our homebuyers.
“We received a variety of inventive entries as part of the Welcome Home campaign and it was a difficult task choosing a winner, however we hope this project has inspired the imaginations of the children involved.”
Marston Fields currently has a selection of four and five bedroom available with prices starting from £449,995.
