Tom Ratcliffe with pupils from Lower Peover CE Primary School

As a boutique property developer, we know that when we start building, we aren’t just creating homes, we’re creating communities as well.

This is why we take such care when choosing our sites – we want to make sure that they will be able to support the families living in our homes for many years, providing them with nearby amenities and a supportive network.

Working with the communities local to each site is an important part of this, which is why when we started developing Swan Green in Lower Peover, Knutsford, we also made sure we made friends with local businesses and organisations as well. This is how our relationship with Lower Peover C.E Primary School came about.

The school is a fantastic asset of the village as it was rated ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted in its latest inspection and is a well-established and thriving educational setting for children aged 4-11.

We recently invited the 207 pupils at the school to enter a competition and draw their best predictions for the homes of the future.

Two classes also got the opportunity to come and visit Swan Green so they could better understand the benefits of different building materials and processes. We had a fantastic day with the students and loved the fun and excitement that they brought with them.

We recently judged the competition – a tough call given the excellent level of entries – and our Founder Tom Harvey Ratcliffe presented the winners from each year group with their prizes:

Reception: Grace

Year 1: Oisin

Year 2: Poppie

Year 3: India

Year 4: Poppy

Year 5: Grace

Year 6: Christian

Tom commented: “Well done to all the winners and thank you to all the students for putting so much effort into their drawings. We think you’ve all got the potential to be architects in the future!”

Our work with Lower Peover C.E Primary School doesn’t stop here however, as our team has recently been helping the school to overhaul their garden area and we are looking forward to Spring when we can see the results of our hard work.

Harvey Homes is a luxury housebuilding group formed last year by father and son Nick and Tom Harvey Ratcliffe.
