Our regional business unit, Taylor Wimpey North Yorkshire, has partnered with Carlton Miniott Community Primary School for a tree planting initiative at our Kingfishers development in Thirsk.

The initiative took place in line with World Nature Conservation Day which is due to take place on 28th July 2015, and is a worldwide event in aid of raising awareness of wildlife preservation and protecting the natural environment.

Steve Crocker, head at Carlton Miniott Community Primary School, comments: “We’re thrilled to be working with Taylor Wimpey on this exciting initiative – and for such a good cause.

“We know how important it is to teach our children the importance of protecting the environment from a young age, making the tree planting activity perfect.”

Carlton Miniott Community Primary School, which is located just a short distance from our Kingfishers development, is a community school which aims to provide an exciting and stimulating place for local children to learn. As well as the national curriculum, the school provides a wealth of other in-school and out of school learning opportunities for its pupils.

Steve concludes: “It’s been great working with Taylor Wimpey on such a worthwhile cause, and we hope to partner with the company again in the not too distant future.”

Debbie Whittingham, Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey North Yorkshire, comments: “Protecting the environment is at the forefront of our ethos and this is something we were keen to educate the children of Thirsk about.

“The tree planting exercise with the school was a lot of fun, and we’re glad that the group enjoyed the experience.”

Kingfishers currently offers a selection of two and three-bedroom properties.
