The competition organised by Briggs & Mortimer involved drawing the perfect home, taking into consideration factors such as visual appeal and eco-friendliness.

The winners – Luisa Stachini who is in Year 5 at Roysia Middle School and Juliet Riese-Murphy who is in Year 4 at St Mary’s Catholic Primary School – won vouchers for themselves as well as money for their schools.

Briggs & Mortimer office administrator Evie Scott said: “We are so impressed with the thought and care that has gone into all the entries.”

The Market Hill office received more than 100 entries from schools including Icknield Walk First School, Roman Way First School, Tannery Drift First School and Studlands Rise First School.

The team will be contacting schools to give everyone who participated a small prize.
