Young Welwyn Artists Work Features In Linden Homes Calendar
16 Dec 2015

12 lucky children from Welwyn St Mary’s Primary School have been given the opportunity to see their original drawings featured in an exclusive calendar. The children were given the theme of ‘favourite places in Welwyn’ by Linden Homes and fought off fellow class mates for a place in the school calendar.

The year four children from Welwyn St Mary’s, the same year group who recently embarked on a school trip to the Wilshere Park development earlier this year, were set the task as a piece of homework over November half term to explore their neighbourhood and pick their favourite area to draw. The judges at Linden Homes then had the pleasure of reviewing all the very unique entries.

Simon Pendlebury, sales and marketing director for Linden Homes’ Chiltern said: “We were in a great position to be able to choose from some lovely, creative artwork sent in from the children. All of the entries were very colourful and quite impressive so it was a tough job to pick the winners, but we had great fun doing so and think a great calendar has been created for the school to enjoy.”

A drawing was selected for each month of the year to create an annual calendar with each of the 12 winners receiving their very own copy of the calendar.

The school also received 200 copies of the calendar from Linden Homes to be sold to parents and friends with all proceeds going back to the school. Clive Anstey, year four teacher at Welwyn St Mary’s commented: “The children really got stuck into their drawings over the half term and it was fantastic to see so many lovely pieces being entered in to the competition. The winners are thrilled and really excited to be featured in the calendar.”

Meanwhile, at Wilshere Park potential buyers can move into their stunning new home by Christmas. The homes are surrounded by beautiful woodland and boast excellent design with traditional features. There are 3, 4 and 5 bedroom homes available.
