Pupils taking part in a school project called ‘Street Detectives’ were invited to visit our Longford Park development in Bodicote, near Banbury.
The Year 2 children from Bishop Loveday C of E Primary School in the village have been comparing old towns, villages and houses with new house-building styles and street layouts.
A total of 60 youngsters travelled from their school in nearby White Post Road to the development in Oxford Road, where they were met by our Production Manager Simon Cook, Sales Manager Claire Kemp, and Sales Executives Debbie and Sheetal, who showed them street plans of Longford Park as well as giving them a guided tour of the building site and the showhomes.
Jane Ridley, Headteacher at Bishop Loveday C of E Primary School, says: “The visit to Longford Park was an enriching experience for our Year 2 children. They were able to see the different stages of house building and ask questions about the effect of the development on our local area.”
Nikki Gibson, Associate Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey Oxfordshire, says: “As a local housebuilder, we are committed to supporting the communities in which we build, so we were only too pleased to welcome pupils from Bishop Loveday C of E Primary School to our Longford Park development in Bodicote.
“I’m pleased that the children enjoyed their visit and hope that it was helpful for their Street Detectives project.”
There’s a superb selection of two, three and four-bedroom homes currently available to reserve at Longford Park.
