FOUR homes on a new Bunbury housing development have each been given their own unique name, thanks to creative pupils from the village school.
Muir Group Housing Association enlisted the help of pupils from Bunbury Aldersey CE Primary School by holding a competition for them to come up with names for some of the houses currently being constructed on Whyche Lane near their school.
The development of the 10-house street has been part funded by a grant from the Homes and Communities Agency and will be named Tweddle Close, in honour of Bunbury’s most famous resident, Olympic gymnast Beth Tweddle.
The winning pupils were Diamond House by Nicole Morrison, Corgi Cottage by Meg Illingworth, Athletic House by Holly Illingworth and Wyche Burrow by Megan Morrison.
They were all presented with £10 worth of WHSmith vouchers and a chocolate medal by David Booth, the chairman of Muir Group Housing Association.
Headteacher Alyson Thacker said: “All the pupils were thrilled to be involved with this project and had great fun coming up with their ideas themed around the Jubilee and the Olympics.”
“They can’t wait until the houses are complete so they can see the house names they have chosen become a reality.”
Mr Booth added: “We are delighted the school has really got involved with our project and the children will leave a lasting legacy with their house names.
“Bunbury is a popular rural area and it is fantastic to have support from the community for our development which will create much-needed homes for rent for local people.”
