RESIDENTS of all ages in Warminster and the surrounding area are being invited to put their stamp on a little bit of future history in the town.

They are being urged to enter the ‘What’s in a Name’ competition launched by retirement living developer McCarthy Stone to name a new development in Portway.

Locals are being tasked with suggesting a suitable name for the new development with the winning entrant receiving a £200 prize.

Verity McKay, divisional marketing manager for McCarthy Stone Southern, said: "We are excited to give locals the opportunity to name our latest retirement living development in Warminster.

“We are looking for a name which will be relevant to the local community; and it can be anything from suggestions that honour local landmarks or scenery, to names incorporating elements of the town’s rich history.

"This is a great chance for someone to put their stamp on a little bit of future history in the town.”

To enter, simply email with your suggested development name and the reason behind it.

Please include ‘Warminster naming competition’ in the subject header, in addition to your name and contact details in the email. The deadline for entries is Sunday, May 29.
