Mapperley schoolchildren ‘sign up’ with estate agents

Nottingham schoolchildren have been feeling right at home with their involvement in a vibrant estate agency project.

Pupils from Mapperley Plains Primary School and Carlton Central Infant School took part in a ‘design a For Sale sign’ competition organised by our very own Nottingham Estate Agency.

The youngsters were asked to think about what buying or selling a house or moving home looks like to them when creating their masterpieces - the rest was a blank template!

Winning artist Toby Liptrott, 10, was presented with a £50 voucher at a special tea party that was also attended by fellow Mapperley Plains pupil Alexander Landy, 7, and Lexie Allen, 6, from Carlton Central, who were both awarded highly commended prizes.

What’s more, every time Toby’s board is used at a home Nottingham Estate Agency has for sale in the local area each school will receive a £25 donation to their funds.

Estate agency manager Ben Sales said: “We are proud to support our local communities, especially as we are part of a large, mutual, building society.

“The schools really engaged with the competition, and what’s great is that this doesn’t end with presenting the prizes - we will also be contributing important funds to the coffers of two local schools each time Toby’s board is put up outside a property for sale.

“This competition was different. Our aim was to capture the children’s imagination and allow them to get involved and that certainly happened. Thanks to everyone who got involved.”

The estate agency’s Mapperley branch, which is currently offering potential vendors a free valuation of their property, can be found at 19a Plains Road, Mapperley, NG3 5LG or by calling (0115) 960 6833.
