Local football team kicks-off second year sponsorship from Taylor Wimpey in Monifieth
Monifieth Athletic Football Club’s 2009 team has kicked off their second season with Taylor Wimpey East Scotland as its team shirt sponsor.
Soccer School Co-ordinator, 2009 coach and treasurer for the club, Richard Heggie said: “We’ve enjoyed a great start with this young team and our 2009’s had an impressive first season last year.
“Having Taylor Wimpey’s support for two years has made such a difference in helping us to establish a football team with a professional outlook from day one. The strips are a very important part of creating a team the children are proud to play for, and we are really grateful for Taylor Wimpey’s continued support of initiatives like ours in the local community.
“The 2009 team as completed a successful first season and now established in the 7 a-side set-up. Their second season at 7-a-side kicks off from March this year and the team will continue to progress and ultimately still be playing as a team at under 19s like our older teams at the club.
“As we’ve settled into our stride as a team, it’s also great to see the new homes at Taylor Wimpey’s development coming to life, with people moving in and setting up home.”
Karen Armstrong, Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey East Scotland adds: “We’re really proud of the support that we provide to a range of groups and organisations across the east of Scotland, and we are very happy to have the opportunity to extend our support to Monifieth Athletic Football Club for another year.
“The work we do is a lot more than just building high-quality homes. Being able to work with local businesses and organisations that surround our developments means a great deal to us, and it’s great to know that we are helping to make a difference to the lives of people in local communities.”
Taylor Wimpey’s donation to Monifieth Athletic is one of the many contributions being made by the housebuilder towards community facilities and infrastructure in the wider area.

A visit to our development in Monifieth inspires the next generation
Nursery children aged just three and four years old, were given an exciting opportunity to see our new homes that are under construction at Victoria Grange in Monifieth as part of learning more about their local area at nursery.
Youngsters from the morning session from The Grange Nursery in Monifieth explored our development to see how we build new homes. There was a chance to see some of the various machines that help to move materials on-site, and the children had the opportunity to visit the two show homes and had fun picking their favourite bedroom.
Our team enjoyed having the opportunity to inspire the next generation of future homeowners as Duncan Currie, Site Manager leading the delivery of the construction of the affordable homes at Victoria Grange adds: “We are really proud of our Victoria Grange development as well as the part we play in the local community here, and we really enjoyed meeting the children from The Grange nursery.

We get children at Seaview Primary reading with a donation for new books
We have donated £250 to Seaview Primary School’s library in Monifieth to celebrate World Book Day, which took place on Thursday 1st March. World Book Day aims to encourage more children to love reading and Taylor Wimpey’s donation will go towards providing children in school with many more new books to enjoy.
Scott Haxton, Headteacher at Seaview Primary School, which is located near to our Victoria Grange development, commented: “I would like to say a big thank you to Taylor Wimpey on behalf of everyone at our school. We really appreciate their donation, which will go a long way towards new reading material. Books are a great way to fire up children’s imaginations and to teach them about the world around them, so it’s brilliant to be able to add some new titles to our school library.”
