Wellington Heritage Arts & Alive, also known as Wellington H2A, announced that our North Midlands team supported its annual Midsummer Fayre with a £250 donation. Our contribution went towards a series of free community art events in the town, including the Wellington Midsummer Fayre which took place on Saturday 8th June from 10am till 3pm.
Wellington Midsummer Fayre takes place annually on the second Saturday in June in the town’s Market Square and received support from our North Midlands team as well as the Wellington Town Council and local businesses in the area.
Seen by residents as a feel-good spectacular that no Wellingtonian should miss out on, the event saw thousands of locals experience a day full of colourful costumes, fire-eating, tantalising food choices, endless dancing and more.
Commenting on the support received from Taylor Wimpey, Robert Francis, founder of Wellington Heritage Arts & Alive, said: “We’re over the moon to be receiving a generous donation from Taylor Wimpey. The housebuilder’s support means a lot to not only us but the local residents of Wellington too.
“Taylor Wimpey’s sponsorship gave us the chance to organise another successful Midsummer Fayre and it was great seeing the whole community get together to celebrate the heritage and show Taylor Wimpey how special Wellington really is.”
Carl Cooke, Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey North Midlands, said: “We are delighted to offer our support to Wellington Midsummer Fayre. The day focused on celebrating the ‘makers and doers’ of Wellington, past and present and was an excellent way of bringing life to the town by involving the whole community for a day full of local celebrations.
“The work we do is a lot more than building high-quality homes and it’s lovely to know that our contribution can help make a difference to the local communities and causes in which we build our homes in.”
