A sign of the times!
Here’s vibrant proof of how creative kids can be – a winning ‘For Sale’ sign designed by primary school pupil Susannah Beston that will soon feature in the gardens of on-the-market properties in Cambridgeshire.
Ten-year-old Susannah is celebrating after her drawing was chosen in a competition organised by the Chatteris branch of Harrison Murray, which was open to youngsters from nearby Kingsfield and Glebelands Primary Schools.
Kingsfield pupil Susannah has landed a £50 voucher and, as part of our estate agency ongoing commitment to being an integral part of its local community, each time the sign is used at one of the homes they have for sale in Chatteris and surrounding areas Kingsfield and Glebelands will each receive a £25 donation to school funds.
Thea Woodhouse and Max Hancox-Wilkes, who both attend Glebelands, were highly commended for their designs.
Area manager Jackie Scotten said: “Harrison Murray is proud to support its local communities, and even more so now we are part of a large, mutual, building society in the form of The Nottingham.
“This competition proved to be a huge success and what’s great is that it doesn’t just end with presenting Susannah her thoroughly deserved prize but that we will also be contributing important funds to the coffers of two local schools.”
Chatteris sales manager Sharon Aylward added: “We wanted to do something a bit different, that would capture the children’s imagination and allow them to get involved.
“We were absolutely delighted with the number of entries received from Kingsfield and Glebelands, all of which were worthy of winning. But in the end we had to choose one and we opted for Susannah’s design because it is inventive, fun and really captures the essence of buying and/or selling a property.”
Harrison Murray’s Chatteris office, which is currently offering potential vendors a free valuation of their property, can be found at 46 High Steet, PE16 6BH or by calling (01354) 692900.
