TWEL - Praecedo - Tree Planting - Web

Staff at our Praecedo development in Colchester, Essex, got their hands dirty recently when they planted a tree to mark the beginning of an avenue of remembrance.

On Tuesday 2nd December, green-fingered employees planted the new tree in memory of the soldiers who died during the First World War.

Michael O’Leary, Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey East London, says: “As a responsible housebuilder, our developments are not just about delivering houses but are also about creating attractive and sustainable communities for residents to enjoy for many years to come.

“A big part of that involves planting new trees and providing new landscaping to create a pleasant green environment for the benefit of the new community.

“The plan is to deliver an avenue of remembrance at the development in Mersea Road. As a thriving garrison town, Colchester has a rich military history and we feel this tree planting is a fitting tribute to the many young men who lost their lives in battle during the First World War.

“We hope our avenue of remembrance will become a place for quiet reflection for both the new residents of Praecedo and existing local residents.”

There’s a superb selection of two, three and four-bedroom homes available at Praecedo.
