FOUR youngsters from Winfarthing have a stake in the future of their village after a special school competition.
Guy McGarr, Matthew Anison, Ben Egling and Jacob Pates won a contest to name four new homes which have been built in the village.
Cunningham Builders Ltd of Diss wanted local primary school youngsters to name the four homes in The Street which have been built for Broadland Housing.
Guy came up with Laurel Cottage, Matthew Willow View, Ben Blackberry Cottage and Jacob Meadowsweet and each won a £10 book token.

The house names had to reflect local flora and the children had to describe why they had come up with the name.
Before the competition was launched Cunningham Builders attended a school assembly to warn children of the dangers of building sites and to advise them that they are not a good place to play.
