Windmill Hill Day Nursery showcase Big Dog Art Trail design entry

Windmill Hill Big Dog Art Trail Swinpup

Practitioners from Windmill Hill Day Nursery in Swindon were delighted to showcase their creativity as they decorated their very own ‘Swinpup’ for the Big Dog Art Trail 2023.

Taking part to raise funds for Julia’s House Children’s Hospices, colleagues Imogen Webb, Lora Worthington and Imogen Batty from the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Day Nursery on Windmill Hill Business Park were thrilled to present their final design, which is being displayed with over 40 other balloon dog sculptures across the town from Saturday 15th July.

Decorated with the Windmill Hill logo, Childbase Partnership logo, company values and achievements including the setting’s Ofsted result and award-winning ‘Green Flag’ environmental credentials, the Swinpup will be adopted by the nursery once the trail ends in September, with all proceeds going towards helping children with life-threatening illnesses.

Windmill Hill Day Nursery Manager, Lora Worthington explained;

“We had a fantastic time creating our Swinpup and we are very excited for our nursery families and colleagues to be able to go and find it over the summer months. We wanted to incorporate all the things we are most proud of about our setting into our design and we are so pleased with how it has turned out, all whilst raising funds for an incredible cause.”

The Big Dog Art Trail runs across the town from 15th July to 3rd September and is free, fun and family-friendly, with each balloon dog featuring a different bespoke design, created and sponsored by local artists, businesses, schools and community groups.
