Creating a buzz…Collingbourne Primary pupils colour their way to the top

A colouring competition for local primary schools on the theme of bumblebees has been won by pupils from Collingbourne Church of England Primary School in Collingbourne Ducis.



The competition was organised by Redrow Homes, who are building the Marleberg Grange development west of the Salisbury Road in Marlborough. It was designed to show how Redrow, in partnership with the Bumblebee Conservation Trust, are creating a green space at Marleberg Grange to provide a special habitat for bees.

First prize in the competition was a visit to Marleberg Grange on January 25 to learn about the bee project and about the house building industry. The Collingbourne pupils, all aged between six and eight, were given the opportunity to explore the show homes and to chat with Alan Jacobs, site manager for the development, about how homes are built.


Highlights of the visit included learning the skill of bricklaying and watching a demonstration of the 360 Excavator.  A small presentation was made to the pupil who was the overall winner of the competition. 

Sabrina Dawson is the area sales manager for Redrow South West: “We loved having the children from Collingbourne C of E Primary School come and visit our Marleberg Grange development for the morning.”

“They were all very enthusiastic and excited to learn about housebuilding, particularly when it came to the digger demonstration! We really hope the pupils enjoyed the morning and perhaps we’ve inspired a future generation of house builders.”

Kerri Heath is school business manager at Collingbourne C of E Primary School: “We want to thank Redrow for choosing our pupils as the winners of the colouring competition and allowing them to come and visit the Marleberg Grange site.”

“All the children had a wonderful, educational experience and I know that it’s not one they’ll forget.”
