We went the whole hog when our South West region got involved in a Newton Abbot school’s pig-inspired community art project.
Canada Hill Primary School has laid a “hog trail” with 18 fibreglass pigs decorated by the children and dotted around the neighbourhood – including at our The Copse development. Families can search for them using a special map and clues provided by the school.
Delphine Knott, headteacher at Canada Hill Primary School, explained: “The whole community has been involved in this project and the children have loved seeing their designs come to life.
“Key businesses and organisations in the parish have kindly sponsored and provided a home for the pigs and their many visitors – we’re delighted Linden Homes is taking part in all the fun!”
Brian Deacon, sales and marketing director for Linden Homes South West, said: “We loved the idea of a Hogtrail and were really impressed with the design of our finished pig.
“Streaky is proudly on display in our sales and marketing suite at The Copse and we have had a number of people visit and have their photo taken with him.”
After the Hogtrail, the pigs will be returned to the school and some will be auctioned to raise funds for the project. The Hogtrail map can be downloaded from the school’s website: http://www.canadahill.devon.sch.uk.
