Watch the latest drone footage to see the progress being made at Northstowe.
As with any thriving town or village, it’s the people that will form the beating heart of Northstowe. The community is already integrating with neighbouring towns and villages contributing to life right across Cambridgeshire, and will continue to do so as the development grows.
Northstowe will have its own unique community. Friends and families drawn together around the reality of town life with all the amenities and facilities they could need on their doorstep. Schools, including nursery and pre-school, healthcare, GP surgeries, pharmacy, recreation, community facilities and shops are all factored into one place. Being a town nestled into South Cambridgeshire’s surrounding rural community, some of these facilities will also provide services for other nearby communities allowing Northstowe to become an ideal hub and a destination for the wider community to enjoy.
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.”
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.”
