A student-designed railway sign now sits next to the Lancashire railway line


A rail safety sign was installed by Taylor Wimpey North West who partnered with Barrow URC Primary School.

Pupils from Barrow School in Lancashire designed the sign which has been installed on a footpath next to the Clover Meadows development.

Children were asked to design a sign that educated them about the railway line and how people should cross the line safely.

The winner of the initiative was Charlie, who is 9 years old. He received a £50 book voucher for winning and saw his design come to life.

The Clover Meadows development includes 113 new homes in a range of styles now available to reserve.

Commenting on the children’s participation in the competition, Nicola McArdle, Principal of Barrow URC Primary School, said: “The staff and pupils of our school take great pride in being part of the vibrant local community of Barrow. We were all thrilled to have been chosen to enter the Taylor Wimpey contest and have the opportunity to raise awareness about rail safety. We have a large number of creative students who have worked incredibly hard on their entries and we are very proud of everyone who entered the competition!

Jennifer Burns, Director of Sales and Marketing at Taylor Wimpey North West, said: “We love giving local children the chance to be part of our developments and we were delighted to see the students from Barrow URC Primary School s get involved in our railway safety sign design competition.

“All the entries were fantastic and we saw a lot of really inspiring designs. Picking a winner wasn’t easy but, in the end, we decided Charlie’s design was the perfect sign. Well done everyone and keep up the good work. creativity !”
