It’s so important to not only provide more homes in the area, but to also support the communities that the residents will be part of. With a plethora of good causes to donate to, we were spoilt for choice.I’d encourage anyone looking for a new home with good schools, local amenities nearby and a great community spirit to get in touch with our sales team to find out more about the properties and financial schemes available at Albion Lock.”
