Pupils Katie Schofield, Beth Filer and Connor Lowden fly the flag for their school with Elaine Stratford, from Persimmon Homes and headteacher Peter McCreadie.

Pupils from a primary school in Bushey have helped inspire road names for a new housing development in the area.

Children aged from eight to 11 at Bushey Manor Junior School were asked by business Persimmon Homes to suggest names with a Jubilee theme for the development.

This theme was suggested, as the houses, which are based off Aldenham Road, would be completed during the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee year.

Three pupils who provided royal road names were picked out as winners and each received a certificate and stationery pack, while the school was presented with a £200 voucher from the housing company.

Beth Filer, aged nine, Katie Schofield and Connor Lowden, both 11, all from Bushey, were picked out for their suggestions Monarch Close, Royal Jubilee Road and Queen Lane.

Peter McCreadie, headteacher of the school in Grange Road, said: "It has been fantastic to get the children involved in a fun but stimulating competition.

"It’s been enjoyable to create road names for a new development and the pupils have had an opportunity to learn more about the housing industry. We will use the voucher to purchase books for the school."

Nice Hearts and minds attempt by Persimmon homes.

What about 'Greedy developer Street' And 'extra traffic Avenue'

That would suit them better!

Lack of parking is usually because of local planning policy which in turn is influenced by central government policy (thank you Labour) to encourage people to use public transport.

All well and good, is just a shame public transport is so expensive and awful meaning that people still prefer the cost and hassle of running a car even if they dont have a space.

Well done kids, nice names :-)
