Eyecatching signs designed by artistic pupils at a Bristol primary school are set to have pride of place at a brand-new affordable housing development in their neighbourhood.

Youngsters at Oasis Academy Connaught were invited by housing and support organisation Curo and affordable housing developer Lovell to create the colourful signs which will be permanently installed at Clover Court, in Kenmare Road, Knowle.

The colourful winning entries will have pride of place at the development’s new apartments. Clover Court in Knowle comprises 28 affordable houses and apartments built by Lovell for Curo.

Curo project manager Julie Tebbs says: “Thanks to everyone at Oasis Academy Connaught who took part in our art competition and congratulations to our overall winners, Sara, Morgan, Rosie and Amy. We hope you enjoy seeing your pictures on display at Clover Court!”

“It was great to give the children the opportunity to get involved in this development of modern affordable homes in the local community,” adds Lovell community liaison officer Bernadette Vickery. “They came up with some really vivid designs which are going to look fantastic at Clover Court.”

Each of the winning pupils received a trophy and a goody bag with the school receiving £100 in Amazon vouchers to spend on books.

The 28 homes have all be let through HomeChoice Bristol.
