We donate £1,200 in book vouchers to local schools for World Book Day


To celebrate World Book Day 2019, our East Anglia team has donated £1,200 worth of book vouchers to eight schools, close to our housing developments across the region.

Children at Abbots Green Community Primary School in Bury St Edmunds, Hethersett Junior School in Hethersett, Elmswell Community Primary School in Elmswell, Chilton Community Primary School in Stowmarket, The Vine Inter-Church Primary School in Cambourne, Pathfinder C of E Primary School in Northstowe, Framlingham Sir Robert Hitcham C of E Primary School in Framlingham and Attleborough Primary School in Attleborough, will be able to enjoy reading a collection of new books after we gifted £150 to each school to mark World Book Day, which took place on Thursday 7th March.

Now in its 22nd year, World Book Day is a celebration of reading and aims to encourage children and young adults to come together to explore the pleasure of books.


Stephanie Redgate, Headteacher at Pathfinder C of E Primary School, said: “Reading is such an important life skill and something that we encourage all of our pupils to do more of. Having new books to get stuck into helps to keep up an enthusiasm for reading and we would like to thank Taylor Wimpey for their kind donation.”


Caroline Carter, Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey East Anglia, said: “Books are a fantastic way to feed children’s imaginations. We were delighted to donate book vouchers to eight schools across the region to help them to celebrate World Book Day, and hope that the new books will be enjoyed for years to come.”

New showhome at Taylor Wimpey’s Varsity Grange inspired by Cambridgeshire’s unique identity   

Cambridgeshire’s unique, historic identity was the inspiration for the interior designers who turned the new showhome at Taylor Wimpey East Anglia’s Varsity Grange development in Northstowe into a contemporary retreat. Located in the new town of Northstowe, Varsity Grange is at the heart of an exciting new community which will soon host a wide range of amenities including local shops, pubs and restaurants.


The three-story ‘Belbury’ showhome, which provides flexible lifestyle options to suit modern families, was designed by Claude Hooper Interiors. Lisa Burrell, Taylor Wimpey East Anglia’s Account Manager at Claude Hooper, explains: “We took a lot of inspiration from the local community of Northstowe and the beautiful, rural landscapes of Cambridgeshire surrounding Varsity Grange, to give the new Belbury showhome a calm, elegant and contemporary feel, with design-led and on-trend ideas but with a modern, country twist.


“We also took inspiration from Scandinavian design, which is marked by minimalism and functionality. Using Farrow and Ball’s matt-based paint, we’ve predominately used a sulking pink and grey palette across the home, with small black accents to give depth and a trendy vibe to appeal to any buyer.


“The Belbury hometype offers such versatile space, making it ideal for a range of buyers, so we wanted to show that aspect off in the styling of the showhome. There is a strong focus on the comfy living area downstairs and to highlight that it’s a space which could either be used for entertaining, or as a space where the kids could do their homework, we’ve centred the room around a large dining table. To display the current trend towards a dual or flexible-use room, we’ve created a formal lounge on the first floor for family entertainment.


“We’ve maximised the space by using light colours, plenty of mirrors and by specially selecting furniture which takes advantage of the room available. Above all, it was our goal to make the new showhome feel realistic but aspirational, so it would feel like home to anyone.”


The Belbury showhome is now open for buyers to look around, and a selection of three, four and five-bedroom houses are currently available to reserve at Varsity Grange, priced from £359,995. To find out more information about the homes available, visit the development on Pathfinder Way, Northstowe, Cambridgeshire, CB24 1AA, open 10am to 5pm Tuesday to Sunday and 1.30pm to 5pm on Monday.

What has Taylor Wimpey been up to..


A 7-year-old girl from the Pathfinder C of E Primary School in Northstowe, has won a competition to design a new home greeting card for Taylor Wimpey East Anglia. Children from the local primary school were tasked with designing a card that would be sent to residents the Varsity Grange development. 

Aurelia scooped first place for her colourful picture of a house with celebratory bunting. Her design will now be professionally printed and sent out to homeowners when they move in. Aurelia also received a £50 book voucher prize.

Taylor Wimpey’s partnership with the school comes as part of an ongoing commitment to support the residents and the community in and around its developments. Ms. Stephanie Redgate, Headteacher at Pathfinder C of E Primary School, said: “When Taylor Wimpey suggested the ‘welcome to your new home’ card competition I thought it was a lovely idea. It’s great to be receiving such fantastic support from Taylor Wimpey, and hopefully this is the beginning of a long running partnership.”
