A new hat for Henry

A new hat for Henry

Now’s the time to design!  Lovable four-legged friend, Henry, wants to look his best for the festive season and to be super-smart, he needs a new hat.

To help him out, our Henry Adams sales and lettings offices are asking lots of local school children to help design the perfect hat for this top dog to wear at Christmas.

“Over the next few weeks we’ll be visiting 18 primary schools across the region from Slinfold to Storrington and from Easebourne to East Wittering,” said Gareth Overton, head of residential sales at Henry Adams. “We’ll be showing them a picture of Henry and asking the children to design a new hat for him during November.

“We’re looking for creativity, style and festive flair and we know that our local schoolchildren can rise to the challenge. We’re all looking forward to seeing what brilliant and inspired designs they come up with.”

Children will each be given an entry form for their design of Henry’s headwear. They can draw, paint, stick or sew their designs - the more festive the better!

Entries can then be handed in to the local branch of Henry Adams where a warm welcome and a sweet treat awaits the young designers, or to their school office. We’ll be hanging up the designs in our offices for everyone to enjoy and then we’ll be back to school assemblies in December to present the prizes.

The closing date for entries is Monday 3 December and the winner in every year group taking part will receive chocolate coins.

One overall winner in each school will go home with a fabulous Lego Classic creative builder construction set to create their own dream home this Christmas.

Good luck to all our young designers - Henry is looking forward to seeing your ideas for his Christmas hat!
