School names new road

CHILDREN at Oasis Academy Parkwood have named a new road in Westcliff, Scunthorpe, as part of an Ongo competition.

They were invited to enter the competition to name the road where 20 brand new homes will be located as part of a £2.1 million development near Bridgewater Road.

Parkwood Avenue is the winning road name and three children put this forward - Lacey Davison, Jaden Beasley and Megan Hornsby.

The names were all submitted to a panel of judges with representatives from Ongo, developers TG Sowerby’s and North Lincolnshire Council.

Martin Phillips, Development Manager at Ongo, said: “This development is part of Ongo’s larger plan to completely regenerate the Westcliff area of Scunthorpe.

“We wanted to involve the local primary school so the children could be part of the exciting changes to their community.

“It was great to see all of the entries along with the reasons why they thought their road name should win. It was difficult to choose a winner but in the end we decided on a name that would act as a lasting legacy to their primary school, which used to be called Parkwood Juniors.”

The competition, organised by us and supported by TG Sowerby’s, aimed to not only get children living in the local area involved in an exciting project but to also educate them about the importance of staying safe around building sites.

Steve Lyon, Director of TG Sowerby's and the project’s Site Manager, said: “The local children have been extremely interested in our site and what we are doing. We are pleased to have been involved with this competition. It has given us the opportunity to reinforce the need for them to stay safe around construction sites as well as giving them a real involvement in our project.

“By choosing the name for this development, they have created a lasting legacy, something they can be proud of and something they will always be remembered for.”
