Taylor Wimpey encourages pupils to keep safe on their journey to school
We’ve been urging parents to leave the car at home and walk their children to school in a bid to get fit this autumn.
We provided high visibility wristbands to encourage pupils at St. John’s C of E VC Infants’ School in Glastonbury to walk to school – and help keep them safe on the journey.
Charlie Joseph, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey Bristol, says: “ We are committed to supporting the communities in which we build our high-quality new homes, which is why we have donated slap bands to St. John’s C of E VC Infants’ School.
“We understand that family life can be busy, but we hope our contribution will help inspire families to swap the car for a safe walk to school instead.”
Wendy Turner, headteacher at St. John’s C of E VC Infants’ School, says: “We encourage the children to walk to school to support a regular routine of physical exercise that will improve fitness and help maintain a healthy heart. We are very grateful to Taylor Wimpey for this generous donation which helped raise the profile of walking to school among pupils and parents alike."
Glastonbury Carnival marches on with Taylor Wimpey donation
We are proud to have donated £300 towards the running of the annual Glastonbury Carnival in Somerset.
A staggering 113 floats took part in the annual procession, each with a unique theme including a Viking boat, a robot-inspired Transformers float, a pixie and fairy theme and a design to mark the centenary of the First World War.
Reg Cohen, chairman of the Glastonbury Carnival, says: “This event has been going for over 100 years. It ceased during the War, then was re-established by my wife’s grandfather, and it has been in her family ever since. Last year the police told us we had a crowd of around 100,000 – so we’re definitely still going strong!
“Although it is a fantastic carnival, there are a lot of things that cost money – barriers, insurance, and just general expenditure which amounts to so much, so we’re extremely grateful to have sponsors like Taylor Wimpey Bristol on board.
“There’s a huge amount of floats displaying a variety of original and wonderful themes – this year, around 60 of the designs were mounted with huge illuminations of around 30,000 light bulbs each, so it’s certainly something special!
“We really want to thank Taylor Wimpey for sponsoring us, as donations such as these really do keep the carnival going.”
Charlie Joseph, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey Bristol, says: “We were more than happy to sponsor the Glastonbury Carnival. It does a great job in fostering community spirit, and we hope it does for many years to come!”
Willow Place is the place to be for Ruth
“I live and work in Southampton, but decided to invest in a second home at Willow Place because I love Glastonbury.
“I looked at a lot of second-hand properties but kept going back to Willow Place because I liked the idea of buying a brand new home and not having to do any urgent DIY or maintenance work.
“I moved into my coach house two months ago and I’m really pleased with it, it is ideal for me.
“One of my favourite features is the Juliet balcony – from there, I can see the Glastonbury Tor, an iconic hill with a Grade 1 listed tower at the top, which is a fantastic view to have.
“I like being in Glastonbury, it’s a very relaxed place and I really enjoy the pace of life.”
