Eight-year-old Bonnie Hilldrup thought up the name Hubbard's Loke because her great-grandparents, the Hubbards, ran a building and undertaking business close the new road which is part of a development being built for Broadland Housing Association by housing developer Lovell.

The Great Witchingham Church of England Primary School pupil's idea was the winning name in the competition held by Lovell and Great Witchingham Parish Council for pupils from the school.

Roy Church, from the parish council, said: “It has given the pupils of the school the opportunity to participate in making what will one day be part of the history of Great Witchingham.”

Shirley Palmer, from Lovell, said: “We liked Bonnie's idea because of the strong local connection with the village and the link with her own family.”

Kelci Bailey and Hannah Cushion came second and third. The school was presented with £50 by competition sponsors Bernard Matthews Farms and Lovell gave each of the three winners a £10 book token.

The new development of 15 affordable homes is due to be finished at the end of this month.
