GWP - Didcot First Event

We hosted a special event for community leaders and charity workers at our Great Western Park development in Didcot, Oxfordshire.

The event was organised by Didcot First, an organisation that seeks to promote the local area to new and existing residents and businesses, and offered the chance for key stakeholders to network and share information. It took place on Monday 24th March at the Great Western Park Sales Information Centre.

Darren McCormack, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey, presented our plans for new community buildings and public open spaces at the new development.

He said: “This was a great opportunity for us to tell people exactly what we’re trying to achieve at Great Western Park, which is to deliver a sustainable community that provides the services and facilities that will serve new and existing residents for many years to come.

“As a company we are investing £60m in primary and secondary schools, community centres, a health centre, sports pitches and play areas – facilities that we hope the whole community will benefit from.”

Also speaking at Monday’s event was John Boden, Chairman of the Great Western Park Residents’ Association, and Julie Moloney, Project Assistant from the charity Employers for Carers.

Emma East, from Didcot First, said: “We are extremely grateful to Taylor Wimpey for hosting our local networking event and providing an informative presentation on their development.

“This is one of many different events we organise in and around Didcot.  The Community Matters meeting enables community leaders from both public and private organisations to link up and discuss local developments such as the new Great Western Park development.”
