Buxton school girl names new housing development
23 March 2012
A pupil from Buxton has secured a place in the history books after coming up with the name of a new housing development.
Aimee Ollernshaw, aged seven, from Harpur Hill Primary School came up with the name ‘Foxlow Rise’, winning a competition to name Charles Church’s first development in Buxton.
Aimee impressed Charles Church North West with her creativity and the name Foxlow Rise was chosen because it reflected the nature of the development, set in rural Derbyshire.
The competition was run with Harpur Hill Primary School on Trent Avenue, wherestudents put their ideas to Charles Church, to not only have the prestige of naming the site but also win themselves a prize of book vouchers.
Charles Church sales director, Dave Hodgson said: “This was the ideal opportunity to get involved with the community and allow the younger generation to put their mark on the development.
“We’d like to thank the school and all the children who put their ideas forward.”
Aimee’s mother, Vicki Ollernshaw, said: “Aimee was over the moon to win the competition and is looking forward to spending her vouchers.”
As a thank you for taking part, Charles Church also donated £100 of book vouchers to Harpur Hill Primary School. Foxlow Rise offers a range of two, three and four bedroom homes starting from £138,995.
Ken added: “We are really excited about bringing Charles Church to Buxton for the first time and we are sure local people will enjoy discovering the luxurious specification and quality designed into every Charles Church home.
“We pride ourselves on building homes that harmonise with their surroundings, using traditional building techniques and attractive architecture.”
