Torbay youngster’s green design success

25 September 2015
Chloe’s winning design

A Torbay youngster is set to have her imaginative design transformed into a sign after winning the Raleigh Close Planter Project, organised and funded by Sanctuary Housing.

Creative winner

11-year-old Chloe Martin, along with the other young residents of Raleigh Close, has been brushing up on painting skills by decorating wooden planters with bright colours and inventive designs, bringing a splash of colour to the street.

Developing skills

As well as learning valuable art and green-fingered skills, those taking part in the project have had the chance to meet their neighbours and interact with each other in a positive way.

Alison Kenny, Sanctuary’s head of neighbourhood partnerships, said: “We’ve been working hard with residents of Raleigh Close on neighbourhood projects and they’ve produced some real masterpieces for this one! I’m delighted that we’ve been able to support them to play an active role in developing and improving their community.”

Chloe added: “I enjoyed the project because it was fun and it brought the community together, and the planters look awesome!”

This project was funded by Sanctuary Group’s Community Investment Fund, supporting projects which benefit Sanctuary residents and their communities.
