Coety pupil names Llanmoor Homes” new development

A pupil from Coety Primary School has won a competition to name Llanmoor Homes’ new development in the village.

Eleanor Horne, 10, from Coity, chose the winning name, ‘Gerddi Pentref’, meaning ‘Village Gardens’, for the development, which is launching soon.

All the junior pupils at Coety Primary were set the challenge of suggesting a name for Llanmoor’s new development in return for the chance to win a visit to the Dr Who Experience in Cardiff. Tim Grey, Director at Llanmoor Homes, joined the pupils for their weekly celebratory assembly recently when the winner was announced.

As a thankyou, Llanmoor Homes also made a donation of £250 to the school, which will be used to purchase a scooter rack to help encourage pupils to travel to school in an environmentally friendly way.

Gerddi Pentref will form part of the nearby, larger Parc Derwen development, where a brand new school building is currently being constructed for Coety Primary school. The school will be moving to the new building later this year.

Gerddi Pentref will feature 93 two, three and four bedroom homes, with the first releases expected in early February. There will be no fewer than 14 different house types on offer at the development, including the brand new 3 bedroom ‘Ewenny’ design. The show home, expected to open in the summer, will be a 4 bedroom detached ‘Colwinston’ home.

Sue Davies, Deputy head of Coety Primary School said:
“We’re very grateful to Llanmoor Homes for the opportunity they gave the pupils and for the donation made to the school. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed researching the area and thinking of names for the new development, and we’re looking forward to visiting once it’s opened!”

Tim Grey said:
“I’d like to thank Coety Primary school for their involvement in naming this development, and well done Eleanor for her winning entry! We received a number of great suggestions and choosing a winner was difficult.
“It’s important to us to work with the communities which we’re building in and involve them where we can. We’ve already received a large number of enquiries about Gerddi Pentref, therefore we’re anticipating that it will be a very popular development, which will form a key part of the community in Coity.”
