Milngavie Week Primary School Art Competition Winners Announced

24 June 2019

The UK’s leading retirement housebuilder, McCarthy and Stone, building Retirement Living apartments at its local Riverwood development, teamed up with Milngavie Week to sponsor this year’s Primary School Art Competition and the winners have now been revealed.

This year’s theme asked local school children to create a representation of Milngavie, and the judges at McCarthy and Stone were really impressed with the quality of the entries.  This year’s winners, whose winning designs were proudly displayed at McCarthy and Stone’s Riverwood Information Centre in Milngavie Precinct during Milngavie Week are:

1st Prize  of a £50 Hobbycraft voucher was awarded to Olivia R of Clober Primary School for her picture of Milngavie Town Centre scene with the clock and war memorial.
2nd Prize of a £30 Hobbycraft voucher was awarded to Eva K of Craigdhu Primary School for her illustration of the West Highland Way route.
3rd Prize of a £15 Hobbycraft voucher was awarded to Hannah S of Clober Primary School for her artwork showcasing the Colpi Ice Cream shop in Milngavie. 

Wilson Blakey, Milngavie Community Development Trust and lead organiser of Milngavie Week said: “We are thrilled that McCarthy and Stone has been so supportive and heavily involved in this year’s Milngavie Week.  The primary school art competition is always a real fun way to engage the younger members of our local community in our festivities, and this year the standard and number of entries was outstanding.  The judges at McCarthy and Stone had tough choices to make but the three winning designs are brilliant and a great representation of Milngavie.”

Lorraine Paterson, Sales and Marketing Director for McCarthy and Stone in Scotland adds: “We are absolutely delighted to be able to be involved in such an important local community week of festivities.   With so many strong entries, it was a really hard decision for us to choose just three, but we hope that everyone enjoyed taking part and that lots of people took the opportunity to pop along to our Riverwood Information Centre in Milngavie Precinct to see the three winning designs for themselves.”
