WEB - Holbrook Site Visit (1)


Schoolchildren from Holbrook Playgroup in Suffolk experienced a behind-the-scenes look at how brand new homes are constructed during a special guided tour hosted by our team at Taylor Wimpey East Anglia.

Ten youngsters from the playgroup class were invited to visit our upcoming Holbrook development off Ipswich Road, to see first-hand how the construction industry works.

Our Taylor Wimpey East Anglia team welcomed the pupils and staff to the development on Tuesday 27th September to give them a guided tour of the construction site.

Joanna Springall, Deputy Manager of the Holbrook Playgroup, says: “We would like to thank Taylor Wimpey for giving our children the opportunity to look round this site today and showing them the early stages of the archaeological dig. We will eagerly watch the progress of the houses being built.  

“The children have had a fantastic time and we will go back to playgroup and do some mini-digging of our own, before making our own little buildings using materials to hand!

Alan Squirrell, Production Manager for Taylor Wimpey East Anglia, 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 Holbrook Primary School to our Holbrook development.

“With work progressing well on the development, we also saw it as a great opportunity to teach pupils about the potential risks of a building site.

“We’re delighted to hear that the youngsters enjoyed their visit.”

Holbrook is an exciting new development, which will comprise a superb selection of 78 high-quality homes – with the first properties due to launch in summer 2017.
