Shepton Mallet pupil named as winner of perfect place


With an aspiration to build inclusive, engaged communities surrounding its developments, the developer asked local school children to submit an image which illustrated what makes Shepton Mallet their perfect place.  

Isobel Hill submitted the winning picture and last week was presented with a £50 book token and £200 of art supplies for her school, allowing everyone to join in the excitement. 

Michele Rose, sales director for Bloor Homes South West explains: “The standard of entries was particularly high for this competition, with over 500 submissions in total, but we felt that Isobel’s entry really captured the best of Shepton Mallet and we’re delighted to name her as our winner. 

“We pride ourselves on building communities, not just homes, so we really enjoyed having the opportunity to hear what the children in Shepton Mallet love the most about where they live. It was a pleasure to launch a competition which not only involved local children but also benefits a school in the local area.”

Chris Partridge, Headteacher at St Pauls C of E Junior School added: “We’re absolutely thrilled that our school has been named winner of the Bloor Homes perfect place competition in the South West, thanks to the entry by Isobel. Shepton Mallet is a great place to live and it’s brilliant that this has been recognised through the competition. 

“All of the children thoroughly enjoyed taking part and we look forward to working with Bloor Homes again in the future.”
