Children from a local primary school have been working with a housing developer to design their dream home.

Using Miller Homes Oakwood design as a template, the pupils of St John’s C.E. (VA) Primary in Cliviger, Lancashire used arts and crafts to design their dream homes for the colouring competition.

The three winners were chosen from year four and five classes, they were Elsie Whitehall, Harry Lambert and Ava Aspden receiving arts and crafts goodies as their prizes, provided by the house builder.

Clare Noakes, sales director at Miller Homes North West, said: “We loved the designs that the kids come up with and thought they did a very good job of designing our Oakwood homes. A big congratulations to the winners.”

Deputy headteacher from St John’s C.E. (VA) Primary, Robert Klee said: “It was great to work with Miller Homes on this colouring competition and we look forward to working with one another again in the future. The pupils really enjoyed designing their dream homes.”

Miller Homes also recently announced it will be making contributions of over £1.3m to the area, which will be spent in areas such as education and affordable housing.
