Budding artists sought at Meltham C of E School

Budding artists sought at Meltham C of E School

3rd May, 2019

We’re delighted to announce that we have launched a school competition, for one lucky child to be in with a chance of being the artistic inspiration behind Applegate’s new ‘for sale’ signs!

Earlier in the week our MD, Amy Wray, headed down to Meltham Church of England School – which she attended as a youngster – to introduce herself and the content to the students. And its fair to say there was a great deal of excitement!

The 400 pupils have until the 13th May to create a design based around what ‘home means to them’. We’re after a drawing that is bright and colourful, to remind our customers that we’re a friendly, independent estate agent, focused on how important your house is to you – whether you’re buying, selling, letting or renting.

Then its over to our wonderful judges to narrow it down and pick their favourite! Helping us is Jim Robinson, owner of Booth House Gallery in Holmfirth, and Kerry Sykes, CEO of Holmfirth Events. We’re still on the lookout for our third and final judge, so keep your eyes peeled for our announcement on social media soon!

The winning drawing will be given pride of place on our boards, that will be put up around the Holmfirth and Huddersfield area during May, June and July – and the artist will receive a huge Crayola Inspirational Art Case. Second and third place will also be awarded an art set for their creative efforts.

In addition, we will be donating £20 to the school’s art department for every new property instruction in May, June and July, as an extra thank you for dedicating time in lessons for pupils to create their designs.

So, please recommend as many people as possible to speak to us if they’re considering selling their home – there is no obligation, our initial valuation is free of charge and now this wonderful local school will benefit too!

Good luck to everyone who enters and we can’t wait to see your beautiful artwork!
