Enterprise Urban and Laragh Homes, joint developers of Middleton Green, Cambridge, recently announced the winner of their art competition for local school children. The budding young artists were asked to design their dream home for a chance to win a fantastic art prize and a donation to their school’s PTA.
Eight-year-old Emily Hughes-Roberts from Milton Road Primary School was announced as the winner on Friday, 14 November, and the prize awarded during the school’s assembly. Emily was presented with a very impressive wooden art kit containing watercolours, acrylics and lots of other artistic goodies. Milton Road Primary School also received £250 for its PTA.
Hattie Bacon (centre in the picture) of Enterprise Urban, Hannah Greenhow of Laragh Homes, and Nick Phillips of DPA Architects, who designed the Middleton Green scheme, presented Emily with her prize. The group also decided that Emily’s five-year-old sister, Alice, should receive recognition for a lovely drawing she sent in, despite not being old enough to enter the main competition. Alice’s gift was also an art set, suitable for a slightly younger child.
Both girls’ drawings have been framed and will be hung in the show home at Middleton Green, which is due to be open early next year.
Hattie Bacon commented, “We are thrilled that Milton Road Primary School came up with such a wonderful array of entries. Our development is very much at the heart of this community and we are delighted to have been involved in an activity with the school. We also have some brilliant artwork for our show home and maybe a possible architect or interior designer on our hands with the Hughes-Roberts sisters!”Back to news
