YOUNGSTERS put their heads together to come up with the name for a new 45-home estate close to their school.

Mayhill juniors in Odiham thought up the name Bufton Fields for Persimmon Home’s latest development off Queens Road in North Warnborough.

Adam Morris decided on the chosen name and was handed £50 of Toys ‘R’ Us vouchers for his efforts.

The developer also donated £150 worth of book tokens to the school.

“I came up with the name while my class was studying the history of Odiham and the surrounding area,” said Adam.

“Bufton was a farmer and well-known local landowner. I thought the name would be in keeping with Persimmon’s new development.

Persimmon Homes’ sales manager Tracey Lee said: “We are always keen to get involved with local schools and communities in areas in which we are building.

“Activities such as these are a good way to get to know a community and they work out to everyone’s advantage — we get some new ideas and the school and pupils get some useful prizes.”

York-based Persimmon has started work on the 45 terrac-ed, semi-detached and deta-ched family homes, ranging from two to four-bedrooms.

Buyers can move into the first homes in the spring.
