South Cerney Children Mark Walking Awareness Week

The students created eye-catching designs to highlight the health and environmental benefits of walking to school to mark the awareness week which runs from 17th to 21st May.

We are currently developing Saxon Meadows, a collection of three, four and five-bedroom homes in South Cerney, close to Ann Edwards Primary School. We asked the children to focus on their own journeys to school as a theme for the artwork.

The winning posters were designed by Charlotte, Isla-Mae, Ruby, Lara, Josephine, and Charlie who all won £25 of shopping vouchers.

Sarah Williams, sales director for Wain Homes, said: “This is a truly beautiful part of the country to live and we are lucky to have such great schools within walking distance of our Saxon Meadows development.

“It is fantastic to see how the children understand all the benefits of walking to school and we hope their brilliantly designed posters will encourage even more people to leave their cars at home and enjoy a stroll to school.”

Ian Moore, headteacher at Ann Edwards C of E Primary School, said: “Thank you to Wain Homes for inviting our children to take part in this challenge and it is great to see everything our pupils enjoy about walking to school."

“Walking really helps students have a clear mind ready for all the learning they will do during the school day. Their brains are ready to soak in so much more information when they are refreshed and happy.”

We will soon be releasing phase two of our Saxon Meadows development situated off Berkeley Close.
