Broughton Pupil’s Sheep and Cheerful Design for Preston Show Home

A Broughton primary school student gave a whole new meaning to flock wallpaper after winning Wain Homes’ farm-inspired interior design competition.

We asked Year 2 pupils at Broughton-in-Amounderness CE Primary School on Garstang Road in Preston to create artwork featuring their favourite farmyard animals, with Mason Pollard-Kennedy’s sheep art inspiring the interior design at our Pinfold Manor show home.

The sheep motifs adorn the walls and bedding of a child’s bedroom in the Shakespeare show home and a range of cuddly sheep and farm toys reflects the development’s semi-rural location.

Andrew Blundell, Sales Director at Wain Homes, said: “Agriculture is such an important part of this area and we know farms have a special place in the hearts of young children.

“It was great fun seeing all the brilliant artwork from the pupils at Broughton-in-Amounderness school and it has helped us create a bedroom with a real local ‘wow’ factor.

“Going to sleep in this bedroom won’t be a problem for any child thanks to Mason, with so many sheep to count; in fact, we’re thinking of uploading a video to ‘Ewe’ Tube.”

We are building 129 two, three, four and five-bedroom energy efficient new homes at Pinfold Manor on Garstang Road and recently opened two new show homes – the four-bedroom Shakespeare and the five-bedroom Richmond designs.

We invited Mason to the development to see the bedroom he helped inspire, which is already impressing visitors.

Andrew added: “All the children created such great artwork it was very difficult to pick a winner but we just felt Mason’s sheep design would be the one to have people flocking in to see it.”

Mason was presented with a £50 voucher for his winning design and Wain Homes also made a donation to school funds for the purchase of new reading books as a thank you to the children for taking part.
