Youngsters at a primary school in Long Stratton demonstrated their artistic skills in a welcome card competition for new homeowners.

Regional housebuilder Taylor Wimpey invited pupils of St Mary’s Church of England Junior School to design their own colourful welcoming message for new residents of Tharston Meadow.

The winning entry was created by eight-year- old Connie Melling, who received a £30 book token, while runner-up Ellie Hope, also aged eight, was given a £20 voucher.

Caroline Carter, sales and marketing director for Taylor Wimpey East Anglia, said: “We’re delighted that pupils at St Mary’s C of E Junior School have helped us to make moving day even more special for homebuyers at Tharston.

“All the children’s designs were really impressive and it was certainly a tricky job trying to pick a winner.

“We’d like to congratulate our prize-winners and say thank you to everyone who took part for their fantastic work.”

This comes after Taylor Wimpey market manager Olivia Peters, visited the children as a special guest speaker to discuss housebuilding and the importance of building site safety.

Ms Carter added: “We hope that everyone enjoyed the talk Olivia gave.”
