Local young people have been given the chance to build homes in their own community at our Lindfield Meadows development in West Sussex.

 

We are supporting the next generation of builders and have employed 12 bricklaying and seven carpentry apprentices to help with construction of the 130 new homes at the development. The apprentices are supported by master tradesmen, and have the opportunity to develop their practical skills through on-the-job training.

 

Matthew Parsons, a second year carpentry apprentice, lives a short distance away from Lindfield Meadows. He said: “I am proud to help build these houses and of the man I am becoming due to my experiences with Taylor Wimpey. I’m especially excited to have worked on the houses at Lindfield Meadows because I only live two minutes away, and I can finally show my friends what I have built.”

 

Fiona Anderson, Apprentice Manager at Taylor Wimpey South Thames, said: “We are excited to be giving local people like Matthew, Molly and Dominic the opportunity to get onto the career ladder with us, and be a part of building homes in their own community. Our apprentices play a key role in helping us to deliver houses that people want to buy and call home at Lindfield Meadows.
