David Fiddler, a year 3 pupil of Highcliffe St Mark Primary School has won a competition to name the latest Highcliffe development of new homes by Bayview Developments.
The winning suggestion “Smugglers View” was formally announced at a prize presentation during school assembly immediately prior to the end of Summer term. Runners-up prizes were also awarded to individual year group winners; Hannah Hughes (year 4), Fern Mansfield (year 5) and Esther Hughes (year 6). Many of the suggested names made reference to the rich heritage of both the immediate area and the previous property that occupied the site, as well as the wider Highcliffe area as a whole. The winning pupils each received Lego construction sets and certificates whilst Bayview also made a donation to the school in the sum of £250 to provide for further school equipment.
Assistant Head Gavin Withey, was delighted with the level of participation and engagement by the school pupils and commented that the competition had been a great success.
The site name “Smugglers View” has now been adopted as part of Bayview Development’s marketing literature and will be used for the production of sales brochures moving forward. Bayview has already started work on the site which is due for completion mid 2017 and it is hoped that age group winners will have the opportunity to visit the site during construction and to attend its formal launch planned upon completion.
