Community heroes revealed in Scotland

Date: Monday 09 November 2020


We recently asked our customers in Scotland to nominate their local community heroes – the people who have gone the extra mile to make every day living at their development just that bit easier as the current health emergency continues to impact us all in one way or another.

From recognition for key workers who live in our Scottish developments, to kind gestures like cutting grass for a neighbour, organising events or making bespoke face masks - we have loved getting to know more about some of the local community heroes making a difference at our developments across Scotland. 

Today we’re featuring some of our local community heroes and on behalf of everyone at Taylor Wimpey in Scotland – thank you!

James Cairns, was nominated by some of his neighbours at Dargavel Village.  They said: “James spent many hours of his time co-ordinating numerous active challenges for residents within Bishopton and beyond during lockdown.  He organised the Bishopton Virtual Marathon; 100KM in June; Bishopton Day/Week 5k/10k and each challenge included organising T-shirts/medals for the achievers.  It was such an inspiration to see so many people out exercising.”  On hearing about his award James said: “I’m humbled and really only handed out t-shirts - the people of Bishopton did most of the running!”

Sheena Morrison, has been helping lots of people in her community at Calderwood in East Calder, her neighbours said: “Sheena has done a great job of collecting food for the food bank and using her work place as the main operation centre, and she organised a superheroes day for all the kids.  She’s a brilliant neighbour, kind and always supports local business. Give the woman a gold medal!”  In response, a very happy Sheena said: “It was lovely to be nominated.”
