Drayton children make Bloor Homes bloom

Children from Drayton Community primary school got their fingers green at a planting event at Bloor Homes’ The Dovecote development.

The event was organised to mark National Children’s Gardening Week (25 May – 2 June) and saw the children put paint to paper to come up with some colourful creations to inspire the design of garden troughs at The Dovecote development. They were then invited to get their hands dirty and help with the planting. 

Mrs Durman, Year 2 Teacher at Drayton Community primary school commented: “Our pupils really loved getting involved in the project. We talked about the new homes being built and the importance of gardens to add colour and interest. We then looked at pictures of garden planting and the children got to work with their own colourful designs. 

“It was really exciting for our children to visit the development today and get involved in bringing their ideas to life – they had a fantastic time and the end result looked great.”

Gemma Deacon, Acting Head of Sales for Bloor Homes South Midlands added: “We were delighted to welcome students and teachers from Drayton Community primary school to get involved in the planting at The Dovecote. We have recently launched our Brighter Communities campaign and working with local schools is a key part of our commitment. 

“The troughs are the perfect addition to the development and will add some much-needed colour throughout the summer months.”
