Our site manager is celebrating a National House-Building Council award win
We’re celebrating after our site manager at Greenhill Gardens received a prestigious NHBC (National House-Building Council) Pride in the Job Quality award. The award recognises site managers and their teams who produce the highest quality homes and winners are selected from around 16,000 site managers from around the UK. Murray Pike Site Manager at our Greenhill Gardens development in Haywards Heath is one of the 450 recipients of a Pride in the Job Quality award in 2018.
David Hill, Interim Managing Director of Taylor Wimpey South Thames, said: “We are committed to maintaining the highest levels of quality and customer service and are very proud to have a Pride in the Job Quality award winner on our team. Murray Pike and their team work extremely hard to ensure that the homes we provide are of a consistently high standard and the recognition for their efforts is thoroughly deserved.”
Pride in the Job is the only UK-wide awards scheme that recognises the significant contribution of site manager’s who achieve the highest standards in new home construction.
Kangaroos bounce away with our donation
We are pleased to announce that the charity Kangaroos are the first winners of our recently launched donation box scheme at Greenhill Gardens. Our charitable initiative invites visitors and residents to Greenhill Gardens to vote for one of three local good causes to receive a monetary donation. Kangaroos, a charity which supports children and young adults with learning disabilities, received the most votes from the local community and we gifted them with £250.
Commenting on our donation, Samantha Norgate, Fundraising and Communications Co-ordinator at Kangaroos, said: “With the continuous threat of cuts to voluntary sector funding we have been trying to increase awareness of the work we do and to encourage more voluntary donations. We were therefore delighted to find out that the local community had chosen us to be the first recipients of a £250 donation from Taylor Wimpey. Our clubs are in high demand and the activities we put on really do help to improve the children’s social skills, independence and self esteem. It’s vital that we continue our work and donations like this from Taylor Wimpey will help us to do just that and I’d like to say a big thank you for the support.”
Louise Adams, Sales Manager for Taylor Wimpey South Thames, said: “The clubs and activities that Kangaroos organise help so many children across Mid Sussex and I have no doubt that our £250 donation will be put to excellent use.”
We lend St Francis Rangers Youth Football Club a helping hand
St Francis Rangers Youth Football Club in Haywards Heath has received a welcome donation of over £1,000 from us to cover the cost of kit and tracksuit tops for the squad, manager and the two coaches of their under 11's team.
Commenting on the support it has received from us, Steve Adams, a coach for the under 11's said, “I thought I would ask for the kits and tracksuit tops that we needed and would have been thrilled with the kit but to receive both is beyond amazing. Last season we had hand me-downs and the kit was looking really tired. I am so grateful to Susan Joseph and all at Taylor Wimpey South Thames for this wonderful donation. This season it will be all new and smart with the Taylor Wimpey logo, which is absolutely brilliant. I think the lads will be made up by this – it will give them a bit of pride.”
Susan Joseph , Sales and Marketing Director at Taylor Wimpey South Thames said: “We’re delighted to make this donation to St Francis Youth Football Club’s Under-11s team and help them with all the great work they do for youth sport in the area. We feel it’s extremely important to support clubs and organisations that make such a positive contribution to the communities in which we build our new homes."
