Taylor Wimpey flies the flag for Winchburgh primary school
Taylor Wimpey East Scotland recently challenged the Primary 5 and Primary 6 pupils of Holy Family Primary and Winchburgh Primary to design a flag to welcome customers and visitors to its Auldcathie View development in Winchburgh.
The winning flag design was created by a pupil from Primary 6 at Holy Family Primary, and it 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 Auldcathie View.
The winner took home a £50 book voucher and recently visited the development to see the flag in-situ.
The standard of the entries was so high that five additional entries from those received from both schools were also chosen to form part of additional signage at the development to welcome visitors. Each child with a featured design has received a £20 book voucher.
The children at Holy Family Primary enjoyed rising to the challenge of this fun competition as Miss Murray, head teacher, said: “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. We are thrilled that one of our children’s designs was chosen as the overall winner. The flag looks great, and it is a lovely connection between our school and the local Taylor Wimpey development at Auldcathie View.”
Mr Ian Harvey, head teacher at Winchburgh Primary School commented: “This was a unique challenge for our children to get involved in, and we were delighted that four of our children’s designs have been chosen to be included in the development’s signage that creates such a colourful and vibrant welcome to the area.”
Penny Lochhead, community engagement manager, Winchburgh Developments Ltd, said: “It was our pleasure to be invited to judge the children’s entries and to select the winners of the Taylor Wimpey competition. We were thrilled to see the engagement and hard work from our local primary schools and the calibre of entries was very high. It is fantastic to see the winning flag flying proudly above the Taylor Wimpey site and we are very encouraged to see Taylor Wimpey’s continued engagement within the village.”
Kirsty McGill, sales and marketing director for Taylor Wimpey East Scotland, added: “We recognise the importance of making sure that we support the communities in which we build our new homes. It has been our pleasure to work with both Holy Family Primary and Winchburgh Primary on this project to strengthen and extend our links once again with the local community of Winchburgh.”
