Corby kids become ‘Redwing Warriors’ in support of landmark new development


Local primary children, from Priors Hall School, have joined forces with leading property developer, Lovell Homes, to learn about wildlife conservation, in celebration of the launch of its latest site.

Redwing Square, in Corby, is set within 965 acres of idyllic parkland and the school children have taken on the role of ‘Redwing Warriors’ to learn how to care for all kinds of wildlife in the development and surrounding areas. Priors Hall School is located just minutes from the site, which boasts a collection of stunning two-, three- and four-bedroom new-build homes.

Trish Foster, regional sales director for Lovell, said: “With Redwing Square gaining its name from the threatened species of bird, we wanted to highlight the importance of caring for wildlife in the community. Working with Priors Hall School was the ideal opportunity to educate the next generation. We’re always eager to engage local people in activities surrounding our developments and add real value to the communities in which we work.”

Pupils at the school received an information pack on how to become ‘Redwing Warriors’, including tips on shelter, nutrients and water sources to help the students care for the birds in their own home as well as the playground. Lovell also donated 14 bird feeders to the school so the children can encourage wildlife into the grounds and gifted a packet of bird seeds to each of the 300 students at the school.

Tess McQuade, headteacher at Priors Hall School, said: “It’s been a pleasure to work with Lovell on this conservation activity linked to Redwing Square. We actively encourage learning outside of the classroom, and the generous donation of bird seeds and feeders will help our pupils get up close with nature and put into practice the tips they’ve learnt from the Lovell team.

“As a school we’ve watched the development grow just down the road. It’s lovely to be able to involve the children in how to care for the surrounding areas for years to come.”

The development forms part of the sought-after Priors Hall Park scheme, for which Lovell is working in partnership with Urban&Civic to create a transformational new community. While benefitting from expansive outdoor space and a rural way of life, homeowners still have the perks associated with town living, thanks to ample local amenities including easy access to key areas in the north and south of the country via road and rail.

Trish added: “We believe that Redwing Square offers the perfect opportunity to be a part of this landmark development. We’ve worked hard to ensure that the site offers something for every kind of buyer, whether they are looking to take their first steps on the ladder or find the perfect home to fit an expanding family. We look forward to welcoming prospective buyers to our show homes and to creating a lasting legacy in the region for generations to enjoy.”
