AMAZING artwork by pupils from a Bromsgrove primary school has 'blown away' housing bosses designing a new development.

Bromsgrove District Housing Trust (bdht) called on creative pupils at Parkside Middle School to produce artwork for its hoardings at the new Roman Court development on Birmingham Road.

Construction work is underway to transform the former All Saints Garage site into 19 homes.

And, while the building work is in progress, bdht wanted to surround the site with colourful creations courtesy of the local schoolchildren.

Kaylee Dennis, housing officer at bdht, said: “We were so pleased when the school welcomed the opportunity to create some artwork for us and we are blown away by the children’s imagination and creativity.

"From environmental pictures to drawings about friendship and the importance of being yourself, they’re all fantastic.”

Sarah Cheuk, teacher at Parkside Middle School, said: “The children really embraced this project from bdht.

"We’re so proud of the artwork that’s been produced and are really grateful for the opportunity.”

Bromsgrove’s social housing provider received the green light for the development, which will be known as Roman Court, in September 2019.

This follows the closure of the former car dealership earlier last year in July 2019.

Once complete, the scheme will deliver 19 one-bedroom flats, a mix of rent and shared-ownership.

As part of the development, bdht will also deliver improvements to vehicular and pedestrian access to the site.
