We gave a funding boost to the annual Brackley Community Carnival in Northamptonshire.
Our East Midlands and South Midlands regional businesses donated £1,600 towards the running of the community event, which took place on Saturday 14th June
This year’s carnival theme was ‘Anything Goes!’. Carnival day began with a procession of floats which ran from Brackley Sawmills through the streets of the town, followed by an afternoon of entertainment at Magdalen College School.
Attractions included a dog show run by Up N Over Dog Training and a performance by the Vander Brothers, a duo of acrobats who impressed with their high-octane show in their Vander Space Wheel.
Other acts included Clown Bluey, a clown with a fire engine, and an act which featured giant Slinkies in a choreographed routine.
Steve Rolt, Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey South Midlands, says: “As a local housebuilder, we are committed to supporting the communities in which we build, so we were only too pleased to offer our support to the Brackley Carnival.
“I hope the people of Brackley had a wonderful carnival day and enjoyed all of the superb entertainment on offer.”
Mariana Knight, Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey East Midlands, says: “We are just starting to build our brand new homes in Brackley and sponsoring this important community event is the ideal way to mark this milestone.
“We are glad that our sponsorship helped to boost this year’s Brackley Carnival and we look forward to supporting other local organisations in the future.”
Taylor Wimpey East Midlands and South Midlands are both building new homes at Radstone Fields – Taylor Wimpey East Midlands at Earls Manor, and Taylor Wimpey South Midlands at Chestnut Grove.
