Neighbours Get Together Over Lunch In Hampshire

Date: Monday 27 July 2009

Visitors flocked to Augusta Park in Andover, Hampshire, recently to enjoy a fantastic street party, held as part of the national Big Lunch celebrations.

The Big Lunch was an initiative designed to bring local communities together and put a smile back on Britain’s face. Bryant Homes and George Wimpey invited everyone in Andover to come together and enjoy a free barbeque at their Augusta Park development.

Pauline Fletcher, regional sales and marketing director for Bryant Homes, said: “We were delighted to welcome so many people to our lunch at Augusta Park. The event was a great opportunity for people to get together and spend time with their neighbours, friends and families.

“When most people look for a new home it is usually location and price that are the deciding factors, rather than the local community, but for Bryant Homes building a community is just as important as building houses. We offer a wide range of house styles on our developments and many of our schemes encompass facilities such as communal areas, open spaces and playgrounds. I’d advise any house hunters who are keen to start a new life in a growing community to come and see our sales executives at Augusta Park to find out more.”

Tim Betts, regional sales and marketing director for George Wimpey, added: “As well as being good fun, events like this help build stronger communities – something which is very important to George Wimpey. We are thrilled so many people made the effort to get together over a bite to eat.”
