    Our Eggstravaganza campaign helped a children’s hospice in Sittingbourne!

    Taylor Wimpey- Easter Eggstravaganza

    We helped Demelza Hospice Care for Children in Sittingbourne to spread a little Easter cheer after donating 78 Easter eggs.

    The charity, which has two hospices – Demelza Kent in Sittingbourne and Demelza South East London in Eltham – offers expert one-to-one care to children up to the age of 19.

    The donation was all part of our national Eggstravaganza Campaign during which Taylor Wimpey employees donated Easter eggs to charities, homeless shelters and foodbanks across the UK.

    Emma Middleton, Head of Events at Demelza Hospice Care for Children, says: “We are very grateful to Taylor Wimpey for this kind donation.

    “It was great to be able to provide Easter eggs for the children and families we care for and they really appreciated the gesture.

    “We’re tried to collect as many eggs as possible from our supporters for a range of fun Easter activities which took place over the holiday period, and this donation was a fantastic contribution to that.”

    Jason Stokes, Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey South East, says: “As a considerate, responsible housebuilder we are committed to supporting the communities in which we build our new homes.

    “Demelza Hospice Care for Children does such a vital job within the local area and we were really pleased to be able to support it.

    “We hope our Easter gift helped to make everyone receiving care at the hospice, and their families, feel included in the festivities over the holiday weekend.”

     

    Our donation helps hospice charity for children

    Demelza Hospice Care for Children has received a donation from us to help provide vital care for seriously ill babies and children.

    We have donated £500 to the charity to help fund expert nurses and care assistants who support children with life‑limiting or life‑threatening conditions.

    Claire Ellis-Waghorn, Acting Director of Voluntary Income at Demelza, says: “As a charity, and not part of the NHS, we must raise over £10.5 million each year to continue providing care to families living in East Sussex, Kent and South East London. 

    Image 3 - Taylor Wimpey - Demelza Hospice

    “Taylor Wimpey’s kind gesture will ensure that Demelza can be there from the start, during day‑to‑day family life, times of crisis, and bereavement – not just for children and their parents, but for the wider family too. Every year we deliver this specialist care to hundreds of babies, children and young people.” 

    The charity has two hospices – Demelza Kent in Sittingbourne and Demelza SEL in Eltham – where children up to the age of 19 receive expert, one-to-one care. This includes respite and symptom management, as well as life-enhancing therapies and facilities such as a hydrotherapy pool and a soft play room.

    In East Sussex, the charity offers a hospice at home service, providing care and support in the comfort of a child’s own home.

    Claire adds: “Taylor Wimpey has previously donated some of their showhome furniture to one of our charity shops and approached us to offer further support. We’re extremely grateful as it helps validate the work the hospice does in caring for special children.”

    Jason Stokes, Regional Sales and Marketing Director, says: “We’re honoured to be able to help Demelza Hospice Care for Children and support this wonderful charity and the fantastic work it does.

    “It’s very important to us that we support the communities where we build our new homes, and helping the hospice to continue providing its services can make a difference to so many local children and their families.”

     

    We donate a bench and planter to Wye Ground Force Team

    We have helped to enhance the local environment in Wye by providing funds for a bench and planter.

    We made a £500 donation after a request from Wye Ground Force, a group of volunteers which works in the village.

    Image 2 - Taylor Wimpey - Wye Ground Force

    Over the years, the group has raised funds for a village sign, a memorial to the First World War pilots who trained at an aerodrome in Wye and various seats and planters. The volunteers also plant up the planters twice a year and arrange watering, as well as looking after the platform at the village’s railway station.

    The new planter and bench are located in Churchfield Way, near to our Downs View development.

    Mary Barratt, Wye Ground Force Treasurer, says: “We are a voluntary group held in high regard by the parish council and villagers alike and there’s no aspect of the village that we do not take under our wing.

    “We are very pleased that Taylor Wimpey agreed to provide this new seat and planter – villagers in this area really appreciate this gesture.”

    Jason Stokes, Regional Sales and Marketing Director, says: “As a local housebuilder, we are committed to supporting the communities in which we build our new homes.

    “We were delighted to make this donation to Wye Ground Force, which does such fantastic work in the village, to help the group further enhance the environment for local people to enjoy.”

     

    We help Wye village celebrate their 20th Christmas Street Party

    We helped to spread some festive cheer and donated £1,000 to Wye village’s 20th annual Christmas street party, which took place on Friday 2nd December.

    Taylor Wimpey - Wye Christmas Party (2)

    Ann Sutherland, Secretary of the Wye Jubilee Community Group, says: “The street party was originally set up to raise money for the Wye Christmas light fund, and has now grown to help support a number of fantastic local causes. This year we will be supporting Wye Ground Force, who fill the village planters with a selection of flowers that brighten Wye up all throughout the summer.

    “The street party has a great buzz around it and really brings the community together. The event was opened by the chiming of the church bells and children from the local primary school singing carols. There was also a variety of stalls, live music, a barbecue and a big inflatable slide – which is always a huge hit with the youngsters.”

    The street party also benefits a number of local community groups.

    “There are some great groups in Wye who had stands on the day – including the Scouts, Guides and the Women’s Institute – and had the opportunity to raise funds for their own cause.”

    Our donation was used to help cover the costs associated with running the event each year.

    Ann continues: “There are a lot of costs involved in the organising of the event. Taylor Wimpey’s donation was put towards food for the barbecue, lanterns for the tables and the street closures. By reducing our overheads we were able to raise more money to give back to the community.

    “The money raised does a lot of good and really keeps our village going. We are very grateful to Taylor Wimpey for their donation.

    “I hope that other villages will look at how popular our street party is and organise their own winter festivals – it’s so important to keep the community together.”

    Jason Stokes, Sales and Marketing Director, says: “As a local housebuilder, we are committed to supporting the communities in which we build our new homes, so we were delighted to make this donation to Wye village’s Christmas street party.

    “We agree that it is very important to keep communities together and hope that the residents of Wye enjoyed this spectacular event to celebrate its 20th year.”

     

    Wye Summer Fair boosted by our donation

    This year’s Wye Summer Fair received a boost to its charity fundraising, thanks to a £1,000 donation from us.

    Taylor Wimpey - Downs View - Wye summer fair sponsorship

    The fair took place on Sunday 28th August and our donation went towards covering the running costs of the event, which helped to raise money for two local charities – the Kent Air Ambulance and the Wye Village Hall Charity.

    Ann Sutherland, Secretary of the Wye Jubilee Community Group, said: “Taylor Wimpey’s generous donation helped with the expense of the fair. It went towards essentials such as food for the barbecue, various refreshments, as well as publicity for the event.

    “Half the money raised will go to the Kent Air Ambulance, while the other half will go to the village hall – which is in desperate need of rejuvenating. The village often used the facilities at Wye College as well as its village hall until it closed in 2009. There are plans to modernise the hall by giving it a new roof, kitchen and meeting rooms – creating a great space that can be used by local businesses and community groups.”

    The Wye Summer Fair included live music from local band Indigo Stone, stalls and a dog show.

    “It’s wonderful to have had this donation from Taylor Wimpey,” adds Ann. “It helped to take the pressure off the event organisers so we could focus on enjoying the fair, knowing that more of the money raised will go to the beneficiaries instead of covering our overhead costs.” 

    Jason Stokes, Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey South East, says: “As a local housebuilder, we are committed to supporting the communities in which we build our new homes, so we were delighted to make this donation to Wye village’s summer fair.

    “We feel these are two extremely worthy causes to support and wish them the best of luck with the remainder of their fundraising for the village hall!”

     

    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 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.

    Downs View - Walk to school

    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 62 slap bands to encourage pupils at Lady Joanna Thornhill’s Primary School in Wye 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 Lady Joanna Thornhill’s Primary School as part of the Walk to School initiative.

    “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.”

    Kevin Grout, headteacher at Lady Joanna Thornhill’s Primary 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 the Walk to School initiative among pupils and parents alike.”

    Walk to School 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.

     

    Economic Benefits – During Construction

    New Homes Bonus

    The Government has announced £917 million of New Homes Bonus allocations for 2014 to 2015 – an initiative that enables local authorities to share in the economic benefits that development brings. Through the scheme, the Government will provide additional funding or a ‘bonus’ by match funding the council tax raised from the building of new homes (with an additional amount for affordable homes) for six years.

    Our development of twenty seven (no.27) new homes in Wye and will deliver a New Homes Bonus payment of approximately £235,000 over a six year period.

    Section 106 Contributions

    Section 106 planning agreements are a way of housebuilders supporting the delivery of local services or addressing matters that are important to local communities – they are intended to deal with requirements specifically in relation to an individual scheme. They are used for facilities such as public transport, roads, leisure (including, for example, play areas), education,
    health and affordable housing.

    Employment Generation and Job Creation

    Research by Michael Ball, Professor of Urban and Property Economics at the University of Reading suggests that every new home built creates 1.5 full time “direct jobs”. Furthermore, it is estimated by the Home Builders Federation that an additional three jobs are created indirectly through the supply chain.

    Economic Benefits – After Construction

    Support for Existing Facilities

    With new homes comes new investment which means many people in the area can benefit from new or improved services such as public transport, schools and shops. Growth of an existing community can also be a key consideration when making a decision to upgrade or replace existing infrastructure. This is often the case when considering provision of facilities or services that demand a particular size of population.

    Council Tax
    Council Tax assists in funding a broad range of local services and facilities such as refuse collection, policing, fi re and rescue services, libraries, leisure facilities, social care and health. Assuming a mix of new homes as described above we would anticipate an approximate council tax receipt being generated of around £35,000 per annum.
