NEW welcome signs for the town designed by students have been unveiled at a special ceremony.

The eight smart double-sided signs are the handiwork of youngsters from William Parker School and the Danetre and Southbrook Learning Village (DSLV).

The ceremony, at Daventry Town Council on Friday, was attended by several dignataries including Daventry Town councillor Ron Fox, mayor of Daventry and Cllr Diana Osborne, chairman of Daventry District Council.

Work started on the project in January and the final sign was an amalgamation of several different ideas. The basic design was created by DSLV pupil Ashley Malin while Jodie Humphries of William Parker School came up with the wording.

Duncan Green, a teacher at William Parker School, said: “It has been a brilliant project and a very positive one for the pupils.

“It has enabled them to express themselves in a different way than they normally would in lessons.

“They will be able to see the benefit to the town which is something they can be really proud of.”

DSLV teacher Andrew Hopkins said: “Days like this are nice because they are all about the students. They are a really talented bunch.”

The new signs will now be manufactured and put up at the town entrances within the next few weeks.
