School children have taken part in a competition to design greeting cards to be handed out to new homebuyers moving into their community.

An imaginative pupil from Swaffham C of E Primary School created the winning design following the ‘welcome home’ campaign by Barratt Homes 

Josie Grace-Childerhouse, six, will see her card printed and delivered to new residents moving to the new development Ceres Rise in Swaffham in addition to receiving a £30 gift card.

Will Phair, sales director at Barratt Homes, said: “It’s important to us to make new residents feel welcome as they join our new communities, and we’re thankful to the pupils of Swaffham C of E Primary School for helping us to do just that.”
