We’ve enlisted children to help us construct new homes in Bedfordshire – only this time the families moving in will all be birds.
Youngsters at Treetops Nursery, which is near our upcoming Kestrel Ridge development in Sandy, have been designing bird boxes to be built in a fun competition that also supports local wildlife.
The drawings will be displayed at the nursery, with our Midlands team presenting individual prizes and a gift to the nursery as a thank you for taking part.
Kestrel Ridge is a selection of 32 family homes close to the town’s Station Road – using the nearby renowned RSPB sanctuary as inspiration for the site’s name.
Sonia Harvey, events and PR manager for Treetops Nurseries, said: “We’re really excited to take part in this fun and learning creative challenge, and the children are already busy with their designs – as well as the excitement of hearing about new homes being built with diggers and other big machinery.”
Linden Homes Midlands sales manager Warren O’Callaghan added: “As a developer new to the town, it is important that we engage with the local community, and we are thrilled that the Treetops Nursery has accepted our invitation of the birdhouse design challenge.
“We look forward to seeing their works of art and are already anticipating what a tough job it will be to single out the best entries.”
