We are buzzing about our materials donation to the Tarvin Wildlife Watch Group, which has enabled them to build a bug hotel in a quest to protect the habitat for bees, ladybirds, frogs and caterpillars.

The group – which is part of the Cheshire Wildlife Watch Group – encourages young people to care for the environment while having fun, and has built the hotel by our Saxon Heath development in Tarvin.

Sandra Hill, leader of the Tarvin Wildlife Watch Group, describes how fundamental donations like this are to the running of the group.

She says: “It’s great to see that Taylor Wimpey has been extremely keen to protect the woodland and animal habitats in the area throughout the whole process of building their Saxon Heath development.

“The materials donated have helped us tremendously but more importantly, they have enabled us to build a bug hotel to protect those little creepy-crawlies like spiders, frogs, ladybirds and bees.”

Tarvin Wildlife Watch Group currently teaches young people, aged between four and 12, to care for the environment while encouraging them to enjoy the great outdoors.

Stuart Craig, Sales Manager for Taylor Wimpey North West, comments: “Ensuring we protect local habitats and wildlife is an extremely important factor for us, so we were absolutely thrilled to have been given the opportunity to help Tarvin Wildlife Watch Group.

“The work which the group does throughout the Tarvin community is truly fantastic – and with our Saxon Heath development now taking shape right in the heart of the village, we love our involvement.”

Sandra concludes: “I would like to take this opportunity to thank Taylor Wimpey! Without such help our work just wouldn’t be possible.”

Saxon Heath currently offers a range of three and four-bedroom homes.
