Nursery children came up with some creative designs to welcome new residents to a property development in Marston Moretaine.

David Wilson Homes invited youngsters from The Marston Day Nursery to come up with greeting card designs, which in turn would be handed out to new home buyers at its nearby - development Marston Fields on Torry Orchard.

The children came together to create two collaborative designs. Significantly in both, Captain Sir Tom Moore’s blue post box can be seen.

Clare Eggelton, nursery manager, said: “As new members of the community ourselves, we were thrilled to partake in this opportunity.

"The children at our nursery enjoy regular walks around the village as part of their learning and development, and this creative brief allowed them to explore what they’d seen, and express themselves through art. We look forward to welcoming new families from the development to our nursery in future.”

Jason Hearn, sales director at David Wilson Homes South Midlands, said: “It’s important to us to make new residents feel welcome as they join our new communities, and we’re thankful to the children at The Marston Day Nursery for helping us to do just that."
