Award-winning site manager at Green Lane Meadows
In June 2020, Mark Palmer, Site Manager at Taylor Wimpey’s Green Lane Meadows development was celebrating after winning a prestigious national house-building award whilst working at the Bramley View site. Out of thousands of entries, Mark was commended with a National House-Building Council (NHBC) Pride in the Job Award.
The award recognises an individual’s dedication to building high-quality homes and are presented following a rigorous judging process by NHBC inspectors. This includes assessing the developments throughout the year, giving homebuyers the assurance that Taylor Wimpey provides top-quality homes and excellent customer service across its sites.
Mark said: “Being a winner of the Pride in the Job award is a reflection of the high quality work that myself and my team did on site. I am hoping that we will achieve back to back award wins, as we have made it through to the next stage of the process for the Green Lane Meadows site”.
We help family find their perfect home
Humberto de Matos, a registered nurse, his wife Joana, a dentist, and their six month old son are looking forward to moving into their dream home after living in a rental property in London.
Originally from Portugal, the family have bought a new three bedroom Byford house type which is available at our Green Lane Meadows development.
Humberto said: "We wanted a house we could simply move into, without having to worry about problems that could arise in the future. We chose the Byford for two reasons. First was the en-suite in the main bedroom and the other being that the kitchen and living room are linked by a corridor which gives a sense of flow through. Also, the fact that Taylor Wimpey has a strong reputation with the NHBC gives us peace of min that we are in good hands."
Family creates their forever home
Ayodeji and Ariyeki (both 39) along with their two children, are excited to make the move to their dream home in early 2021.
After deciding that it was the best time to purchase their forever home, the family were keen to find a home off plan that they could make unique to them, which can also be found at our Green Lane Meadows development. The family found this with the semi-detached Aster house type.
Commenting on their journey so far, Ayodeji said: "It is an extremely satisfying feeling knowing that we are a part o the build process and, as with any off plan home, we had the option to choose our own fixtures and fittings."

We help Aldershot Scouts meet outdoors safely
To help the 8th Aldershot Scout Group re-start and enjoy activities outside again, we have donated over £600 to the group for the purchase of three outdoor shelters.
The shelters will be used by over 60 members and to enjoy outdoor activities, even when the weather is unreliable. Lynnette Norris, Group Scout Leader of the 8th Aldershot Scout Group, said: "As we are currently looking to restart face to face Scouting, we will be trying to organise for as many of our activities to be outdoors. We look forward to using the shelters in the future as we meet as a group again and return to camping.
