New bibs for Tiny Tots
We have helped invest in the players of the future by sponsoring bibs for Exeter City FC's youngest players, the Tiny Tots. Tiny Tots, who are the youngest players aged 3 - 6 years old, gave the bibs their first try out when they took part in the half-term penalty shootout during the York City match.

Halloween Paraders are given a treat
There were no tricks and plenty of treats at Cranbrook’s first-ever Pumpkin Parade thanks to Taylor Wimpey Exeter!
We donated £25 to the spooktacular event, which saw residents of all ages dress up in a gruesome selection of costumes and parade through the community to mark the scariest day on the calendar.
The parade route was given an extra spooky atmosphere after many Cranbrook residents decorated their homes with ghoulish pumpkin lanterns, while our donation went down very well as the organisers spent it on tasty sweets for everyone to enjoy!
Visit from Exeter’s Royal Academy for Deaf Education
At the end of June we received a visit from Exeter’s Royal Academy for Deaf Education. The Academy’s Year 11 pupils who demonstrated an interest in the construction trade asked to visit Taylor Wimpey to find out more about the business and the industry in general. After a quick tour around the office, to gain a better understanding of what happened behind the scenes, the students were taken over to Cranbrook to meet the Sales Team and enjoy a tour of the site. The visit was very well received by all the students and we hope it provided them all with a deeper insight into construction and demonstrated that housebuilding involves more then just bricks and mortar.
