A Kent nursery has a new-look garden thanks to a donation from Taylor Wimpey and Persimmon.
We donated a piece of land near to the Repton Park development in Ashford to neighbouring Godinton Playschool, which is based at Godinton Village Hall on weekday mornings during school term times.
The land forms part of the Playschool’s garden, which has had extensive work carried out on it, including the installation of new drainage, a new fence, artificial turf and new garden sheds. This work was supported by the consortium team and its sub-contractors.
Chair of Godinton Playschool, Kendall Gardner, says: “The garden looks absolutely fantastic and everyone is very excited about it.
“As we are a charity, all of the donations we get are gratefully received, and we’d like to thank Taylor Wimpey and Persimmon for gifting the land to us and to all of the companies which supported the work we have had done on the garden.”
Godinton Playschool has been running for 21 years and currently has around 40 children aged from two to four-and-a-half years old on roll.
Jason Stokes, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey, says: “As a local housebuilder, we are committed to supporting the communities in which we build, so we were pleased to donate this land and support the work to spruce up the garden at Godinton Playschool.”
