Artistic Ribble Valley pupils design their dream home in housebuilder competition
Pupils from two Ribble Valley primary schools have been putting their creative skills to good use.
Pupils of Barrow URC primary school and St. James C of E primary school took part, and children from each school were awarded prizes for their creative efforts.
From St James C of E primary school, half a mile from Montague Place, two winners were chosen: five-year-old Solomon and Emily (10). They won arts and crafts suppliers along with a personalised certificate.

From Barrow URC primary school, which is a 10 minute drive from Montague Place, nine-year-old Ruby from the Willow class was chosen as the winner. She was also awarded the same prize and her drawing, along with Emily and Solomon’s will be displayed in the Miller Homes sales centre.
Sue Taylor, headteacher of Barrow URC primary said: “We’ve loved taking part in the Miller Homes colouring competition.”
Fiona Pattison, headteacher of St James C of E primary school, added: “Our pupils really enjoyed teaming up with Miller Homes, and our winners are delighted with their prizes.”
Montague Place is an exciting new development located in the heart of Clitheroe, it will feature a total of 110 new homes, consisting of two bed bungalows, and three-and four-bedroom houses. Two show homes, the Maplewood and the Overdale, launched at the development recently – now interested house hunters can get a better look at what’s on offer.
Clare Noakes, Sales Director for Miller Homes in the North West says: “It was great to team up with the local schools and recruit the help of the pupils to push the word out of our exciting new houses. They did a marvellous job with their drawings, and we will have to bear in mind their designs for our future show homes!”
