"These Are A Few of My Favourite Things" by Market Harborough School Children

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Aug. 22, 2012) - New home construction experts Barratt have commissioned local school children to create a promotional DVD about their favourite things in Market Harborough.

The short video was made by Farndon Fields Primary School children after they visited the Farndon Fields development on Farndon Road.

The aim is that while homebuying parents are discussing a potential house move, their children can watch the film to see what their potential playmates are up to in the area.

11 pupils took part in the educational project, which is written, edited and presented by the school children themselves and was sponsored by the developers.

Sue Blackman, Sales Director at Barratt Northampton comments, "A sales office can get a bit tiresome for young children who'd rather go out and discover what Market Harborough has to offer them. Having seen the DVD, it's very refreshing and I have to say I think adults will enjoy it as much as children!"

Steve Snelson, Head Teacher at Farndon Fields Primary School, comments, "The pupils that took part in the project thoroughly enjoyed the tour of Farndon Fields and being able to showcase themselves and Market Harborough on the film."

"I'd like to thank Barratt for inviting the school to take part. The skills they've developed are the kind that will help improve their grades in a number of subjects, and hopefully they will take that with them to high school."

On the favoured southern edge of Market Harborough, Farndon Fields on Farndon Road is situated in a great location, adjacent to open countryside yet convenient for both the market town's excellent amenities and attractive nearby villages.
