Children Help Welcome Residents To New Homes in Elswick

Winners of a Kingswood Homes art competition Jessie Brown, Jessica Cowell, Erin Hesketh visit The Hawthorns, Elswick

COLOURFUL cards created by children from a local school will give residents of new homes in Elswick a warm welcome.

Great Eccleston Copp CofE Primary School is less than a mile from The Hawthorns in Elswick, where Kingswood Homes is building new homes.

The homebuilder set pupils the challenge of designing welcome cards to be given to residents of the development.

Sales director Lesley Myers said: “Schools are at the heart of our communities and so we asked the children to help us make new residents of The Hawthorns feel at home and part of the neighbourhood by designing welcome cards. The standard of the entries was great – the children really showed off their artistic talents making it difficult to choose a winner and so we picked three. We loved Erin’s picture of a house on her card, while Jessie and Jessica both had great use of colour on their entries.”

The three winners were invited to visit The Hawthorns where they were presented with vouchers each from Kingswood, while the school was given a £500 donation by the homebuilder.

School bursar Helen Lawrenson said: “Kingswood’s art competition was great fun for the children. They enjoyed working to the brief, with many using the colours from the Kingswood logo. We’re grateful to Kingswood for recognising the children’s efforts by awarding three prizes and even more appreciative of the donation to the school.”
