Exeter Chiefs and the Courtyard Marriott Sandy Park Exeter were delighted to welcome pupils from St Leonards Primary School in Exeter to show off their artwork which is being displayed throughout the new mult-million pound hotel.

Whilst in lockdown, Exeter Chiefs reached out to its fan base to create new designs for Chiefs shirts, including Richard Bolt's NHS inspired kit, which was worn by the men's team earlier this season in our Gallagher Premiership clash with Worcester Warriors.

That competition sparked interest locally at St Leonards Primary School, where they then created their own competition - of which the winners had their work framed and it now hangs, pride of place, within the new state-of-the-art hotel.

As well as getting a guided tour of the hotel, the pupils had the opportunity to meet some of our first team players, as well as the chance to jump on board the team bus.

Exeter Rugby Club managing director, Natasha Pavis, said: "It's fantastic to see the art work from the pupils at St Leonards be turned into something special for the new hotel. Not only is it encouraging creativity within one of our local schools, but now it will be seen by all of the visitors to the hotel.

"We are so grateful to the staff and pupils at St Leonards for their involvement in helping add some extra vibrancy to the walls in and around the hotel."
