Local housebuilder, David Wilson Homes, has teamed up with pupils from Deighton Gates Primary School for a road safety project.

Pupils were asked to design road safety signs for its Templars Chase development in the village, to highlight the dangers of driving too fast on residential roads.

Three winning designs will now be made into signs to be displayed at the entrance to the development, warning local road users to slow down.

Lucy Milnes, Sales Adviser at Templars Chase, recently visited the school to meet the Year 3 class who took part in the competition and choose the winning designs.

The children took part in the competition in pairs, with the winners named as Ellie McGregor and Erin Bolton; Gracie Nixon and Eleanor Beetham and Lizzie Tomlinson and Mae Minns, all aged between seven and eight.

They are now proudly awaiting the development of a banner sporting their drawings at the entrance to Templars Chase.

Lucy Milnes, Sales Adviser at Templars Chase, said: “It has been great to get involved with Deighton Gates Primary School to help educate the children in road safety awareness, and ensure they’re part of our new, growing community at Templars Chase.

“It was very difficult to pick just three winners as the designs are all brilliant and we can’t wait to get the winning signs made up for everyone to see!”
