Old Dairy Cows Go Wild in Streatham

Bellway Homes has let three lifesize acrylic cows out to graze at local organisations in Streatham as part of their ‘Design a Cow Hide cowpetition’, highlighting development works on the Valley Road Old Dairy Crest site, which will provide a collection of contemporary two bedroom apartments and four bedroom houses.
Streatham Youth & Community Trust, Dunraven Secondary School and Sunny Hill Primary School have all accommodated a cow which are now currently grazing, much to the delight of the children, young people and adults who are entering the competition.

Nicky Morton, Sales Director of Bellway Homes South East: “We have been so excited to launch this competition and get involved with the community in Streatham and have been delighted with the competition feedback. Now the cows have gone loose in the local organisations and we are really looking forward to seeing the design entries come through! If anyone spots one of these cows and would like to take part, we welcome everyone to get involved, no matter your age or artistic abilities.”

Angie Foran, CEO of Streatham Youth and Community Trust comments: “We are thrilled to provide grazing space to one of Bellway’s cow. One of our key values is to be embedded in the community, and by working with local businesses it helps us to achieve this. We run youth clubs for children of all ages every night of the week and on Saturdays and the children are really excited about designing a cow hide which could be on public display in the future.”

With vibrant living and stylish accommodation, The Old Dairy will see a collection of contemporary two bedroom apartments and four bedroom houses set in the heart of Streatham; the all-round location for the complete city lifestyle. The area benefits from excellent transport connections with both Streatham and Streatham Hill stations within easy walking distance and numerous bus routes along the High Road.
Ideal for those who love the outdoors, the large open space of Streatham Common on resident’s door step offers amazing views and has areas of woodland, grassland, wild flower meadows perfect for picnics with the family. There are many different facilities available to both casual visitors and regular users at Streatham Common, including a popular café, children's playground and paddling pool. The common is also used for fairs and events during the summer and autumn.

Residents will be able to use the town’s much anticipated new leisure complex, Streatham Hub, which is due to open towards the end of 2013.  Built in partnership with London Borough of Lambeth and a major supermarket, the Hub will include adult and learner pools, a four-court sports hall, ice rink and a health and fitness suite. It will also incorporate a Children’s Centre and Nursery.

The Old Dairy ‘Design a Cow Hide cowpetition’ is open to everyone, regardless of age and artistic flair. There will be three overall winners and each winner will get to see their design applied to the cow, which will be placed in the hoarding of The Old Dairy for all to see. The winners will each receive a framed version of their cow entry, as well as a Kindle Fire or age appropriate prize.

The deadline for entries is Monday 25th November and the winners will be announced on 2nd December. The winning hide designs will be unveiled at The Old Dairy on 6th January, 2014.
