We are proud to leave a lasting legacy in Kingseat
Local charity Bloom in Kingseat from the village of Kingseat in Fife has received a donation of 500 spring bulbs as part of our national Proud campaign to show our commitment and pride in leaving a lasting legacy in the communities in which we build.
The volunteers for Bloom in Kingseat will plant the bulbs around one of the benches in the village where they are set to grow into a bright, floral tribute to the local area.
We have also donated £500 towards the beautiful floral displays the Bloom in Kingseat volunteers create in the village every year.
Karen Armstrong, Sales and Marketing Director at Taylor Wimpey East Scotland said: “We are proud to be building a new community at our stylish development in Kingseat, and we want to leave a place that both our customers and other local residents will enjoy long after we have finished building. We were thrilled to welcome back the volunteers from Bloom in Kingseat to receive this year’s donation of £500, as well as 500 spring bulbs. We are sure that the bulbs will grow into a lovely display that people of Kingseat will admire in years to come.”
Two Taylor Wimpey Site Managers in Fife win national housebuilding awards
Eddie McCann, Site Manager at Taylor Wimpey’s Kingseat development and Barry Watson, Site Manager at its Wallace Grange development in Dunfermline, are both celebrating having each won a prestigious national housebuilding award.
Out of 16,000 entries across the UK, Eddie and Barry have each won a NHBC (National House Building Council) Pride in the Job Quality Award.
The award recognises an individual’s dedication to building high-quality homes for new homebuyers, and they are presented following a rigorous judging process by NHBC inspectors. This includes assessing the developments throughout the year, as well as spot checks, which gives homebuyers the assurance that award-winning developments provide top-quality homes and excellent customer service.
Our site manager Eddie has scooped his fifth NHBC Pride in the Job Award recognising his dedication to building high-quality new homes for our customers. Congratulations to Eddie and his on-site team.
We help out The Trussell Trust foodbank with £500 donation
We have awarded St Columba’s Hospice in Edinburgh with a £1,000 donation and the Trussell Trust Food Bank in Dunfermline with £500 following the conclusion of our “Built for the community” campaign in the east of Scotland.
Our campaign encouraged residents from across the east of Scotland to vote for their chosen causes, and St Columba’s Hospice was crowned the winner after receiving the most votes from the local community. Voting was also very high for the Trussell Trust Food Bank in Dunfermline and the team from Taylor Wimpey East Scotland awarded them a runners-up donation of £500.
The Trussell Trust runs a network of over 400 foodbanks, giving emergency food and support to people in crisis across the UK, where thirteen million people live below the poverty line.
We give boost to Bloom in Kingseat
We have confirmed an annual donation of £500 for the next three years to Bloom in Kingseat.
This funding will provide a boost to the local fundraising that currently takes place, and it will allow the group to increase their spend on a range of high-quality plants for 2018 ensuring the village will benefit from an even more colourful and impressive display next year.
This commitment follows the first release of new homes for sale at our much-anticipated development of 45 new homes in the pretty Fife village of Kingseat and marks our willingness to be part of the local communities in which it builds.
Now in its 11th year, the Bloom in Kingseat Group consists of a vital core of 10 – 12 volunteers who are all retired, and give up their time and use their expertise to enhance the overall look of the village. The group creates and maintains flower beds, display tubs and hanging baskets, and encourages the spread of wild flowers and spring bulbs.
Karen Armstrong, Sales & Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey East Scotland said: “We’re delighted to be supporting such a worthwhile local organisation in Kingseat, and we’re looking forward to seeing even more fabulous floral displays in the village next year."
