    Slap band donation reflects our support for Walk to School Campaign

    We are helping to shine a light on the importance of leaving the car at home and walking to school this autumn by supporting Walk to School Month. This takes place every October and encourages parents to walk their children to school instead of travelling by car.

    We are working in partnership with schools to support the initiative by supplying pupils with high-visibility slap bands to wear during the darker autumn and winter months.

    The aim of the campaign is to promote healthy lifestyles – especially in the light of growing concern about levels of childhood obesity and fitness – and reduce the number of vehicles on the roads.

    We have provided 100 slap bands to encourage pupils at Stone Cross School in Pevensey to walk to school – and help keep them safe on the journey. It is part of a campaign that will see more than 12,000 slap bands provided to children across the country.

    Jason Stokes, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey South East says: “We are committed to supporting the communities in which we build our high-quality new homes, which is why we are working in partnership with Stone Cross School as part of Walk to School Month.

    “We understand that family life can be busy, but walking to school is one of the easiest ways for children to increase their level of physical activity and get fit. We hope our contribution will help inspire families to swap the car for a safe walk to school instead.”

    Anne Allison, headteacher at Stone Cross School, says: “We encourage the children to walk to school to promote a healthier lifestyle and to reduce traffic outside the school. We are very grateful to Taylor Wimpey for this generous donation which will help raise the profile of Walk to School Month among pupils and parents alike.”

    Walk to School Month is an annual nationwide campaign that promotes the benefits of walking to school, which results in healthier young people and less traffic on the roads.

    Our site manager at The Mill wins a prestigious house-building award!

    Tony Donnelly our Site Manager at The Mill, is celebrating after winning a prestigious national house-building award.

    Tony beat off stiff competition from around 15,000 entries to be honoured with an NHBC (National House-Building Council) Pride in the Job Quality Award.

    Pride in the Job Quality Awards are presented following a stringent judging process by NHBC inspectors who perform spot checks and continuous assessment of developments throughout the year.

    The award recognises Tony’s dedication to building high-quality homes for new homebuyers and provides purchasers with the assurance that our development provides top-quality properties and excellent customer service.

    And the fact that this isn’t Tony’s first taste of NHBC success – as he was the proud recipient of a Pride in the Job Quality Award last year too – is testament to his commitment to the job!

    Edward Owens, Managing Director of Taylor Wimpey South East said: “I’d like to congratulate Tony for winning his second Quality Award – his continued success is thoroughly deserved.

    “We’ll all be supporting Tony as he progresses through to the regional heats and hopefully to the grand final in London.

    “Here at Taylor Wimpey South East we are committed to maintaining the highest levels of quality and customer service and this has ensured that we continue to be an NHBC award-winning housebuilder year after year.”

    Pride in the Job is the only UK-wide awards scheme that recognises the significant contribution of Site Managers who achieve the highest standards in new home construction.

    The scheme has been instrumental in raising the build quality of new homes in the UK for over three decades. 

    New play area opens at The Mill

    A superb new children’s play area has been declared officially opened by one of the first families to move into a home at our development.

    The Stevenson family were joined by other local residents and councillors to celebrate the launch of the playground which lies at the heart of the popular development.

    The fantastic facility boasts a variety of equipment including an up-and-over climbing net, a see-saw, a slide, a swing, monkey bars, a balance beam and a jungle climber.

    Jason Stokes, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey, says: “We are thrilled to announce that the fabulous new children’s play area at The Mill is officially open.

    “Having a facility like this is perfect for the families who already live at the development and also for those who are considering buying a home at The Mill.

    “We hope youngsters will have fun using the play area and would like to say thanks to everyone who helped celebrate with us at the official opening.”

    James and Kay Stevenson, were one of the first couples to move in to a new home at the The Mill, and baby Jessica was the first newborn baby at the development.
