NHBC Award for The Coppice
Taylor Wimpey North East is celebrating after winning at the prestigious National House Building Council (NHBC) Awards 2018.
Following 12 months of rigorous judging and a tough marking regime, James Arnison, site manager at The Coppice, received one of the sought-after Pride in the Job awards, allowing him to now go on to compete for the Seal of Excellence and Regional Winner titles.
Anthony Furey, production director for Taylor Wimpey North East, comments: “A Pride in the Job award is the highest industry accolade a site manager can receive, so it’s fantastic to see one of our team rewarded for their tireless dedication to the job.
“Our whole team take incredible pride in their work and we are very proud of all of the Taylor Wimpey North East site managers who continue to go above and beyond to deliver quality homes and the very best customer service, helping us to remain an award-winning housebuilder.”
The annual NHBC Pride in the Job awards, now in its 38th year, is the most highly-regarded competition in the housebuilding industry and has been instrumental in driving up the quality of new homes since 1980. The awards recognise those who achieve the highest standards in housebuilding and celebrate exceptional achievements.
Author & Dragon open Carlisle show home
Ten lucky children at Cumwhinton Primary School, in Carlisle, have been treated to a special book reading event hosted by Taylor Wimpey North East to mark the opening of the Milldale show home at its The Coppice development.
Carlisle author, Jennifer Clark, read a copy of her popular children’s book ‘The Bad-Tempered Dragon’ to the Year Three pupils, who were chosen after taking part in a competition to colour their own dragons.

The reading was hosted in the bedroom of the show home, which has been inspired by the much-loved book, making the storytelling event extra special for the pupils.
Kath Mitchell, head teacher at Cumwhinton Primary School, comments: “This has been a lovely way of encouraging the joy of reading in the children and celebrating local talent at the same time.
“The children all really enjoyed Jennifer’s story and, who knows, they may even be inspired to write their own book one day!”
Visitors to The Coppice will now be able to have a look around the three-bedroom Milldale and get a feel of what life would be like living at the desirable development.
The Coppice offers house hunters a range of two- to four-bedroom homes just one mile from the stunning scenery of the Lake District. The historical centre of Carlisle and its selection of convenient amenities are also just a ten-minute drive away.
Families will be able to make the most of the choice of excellent local schools, and vast amount of green spaces that have been incorporated into the development’s design.
Karl Morton, sales and marketing director for Taylor Wimpey North East, adds: “At Taylor Wimpey, giving back to the communities in which we build is one of our highest priorities, so we are delighted that both Jennifer and Cumwhinton Primary School were able to join us for such a special event.”
Kath concludes: “We would like to extend a big thank you to Taylor Wimpey for inviting us along, and look forward to collaborating with them again soon.”
