Central Ajax Football Club in Warwick is celebrating after its potholed driveway was repaired thanks to grants including a donation from Taylor Wimpey.

We contributed £1,713 toward the cost of the project after being approached by Harminder Dhinsay, whose son Raj is a player at the club.

Central Ajax Football Club is based in Hampton Road, Warwick, just down the road from our Beaumont Meadow development.

The club’s driveway had fallen into a state of disrepair after suffering years of weather damage and was becoming unfit for visitors to use.

But after contributions from organisations including Taylor Wimpey, Warwick District Council and Warwick Town Council, the work was able to go ahead, creating a smooth new driveway with built-in provisions to prevent future weather damage.

Harminder says: “Everyone is over the moon with the driveway now it has been repaired – it means people can get into the club really easily. We are all so pleased that it’s done and we are now looking forward to doing bigger things for the club.

“We are all very appreciative of the support Taylor Wimpey offered us for the project and would especially like to thank Roger Northam for his help and advice throughout.”

Anne Wallace, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey, says: “As a local housebuilder, we are always keen to support organisations in the communities in which we build our new homes, so when we heard about Central Ajax Football Club’s need to repair their driveway we were only too pleased to help.

“Now the driveway has been repaired it will serve the club well for many years to come.”

Central Ajax Football Club was founded in 1978 and now has more than 170 players aged from five-year-olds upwards. The club hosts an annual tournament and its ground is also used for training by Coventry City Football Club’s Academy.
