Great Whelnetham Primary School works with Havebury

Students at Great Whelnetham Primary School have been demonstrating their artistic flair. They have been taking part in an art competition to brighten up the hoarding at our latest development.

Havebury and site contractors Dove Jeffrey Homes, created a competition. The student from Great Whelnetham Primary School had to draw their imaginary dream home.

The winners (ages between 5 and 10), along with their Headteacher, Kath Parkin went for a site tour recently.

Armed with hard hats and hi vis they were able to see their pictures in pride of place on the hoarding.

Prizes included a season’s pass to the National Trust, cinema passes and tickets to a rare breeds farm.

Havebury also donated vouchers to help buy new plants and flowers for the school’s garden.

Director of Development at Havebury, Scott Bailey said: “We’re delighted that we received so many fantastic designs from the children. We thank them for taking part, they’ve really brightened up the hoarding. It was great fun to judge the drawings. Plus being able to involve the community with our project. Particularly getting our young people excited about building.”

The top three and highly commended drawings are now sitting proudly on the hoarding at the site.
