Cubs and Beavers from 2nd Woodley Scout Group enjoyed a visit to our Loddon Park development as part of recent contributions from our West London team to the youth group. The visit consisted of a tour of the Reading development, to educate the children about the stages of building a home and health and safety regulations.
The 2nd Woodley Scout Group also received a £500 contribution from our West London region towards a new surrounding fence for the scout hut. The contribution stems from our national Proud campaign, showing our commitment to giving back to the communities in which it builds.
Operating for over 59 years, the 2nd Woodley Scout Group embraces all people irrespective of age, gender, ethnicity, disability, medical or other needs. As the last remaining building on the Woodley Airfield, preserving the history and heritage of the site is just as important as maintaining an environment that encourages teamwork, adventure and skills for young people.
Chas Randle, Group Scout Leader, said: “We’re so grateful for the generous donation from Taylor Wimpey. Ensuring that the surroundings of the Scout Hall look inviting to our members is so important to us - and having the opportunity to update the existing fence which is becoming quite dated is really appreciated by all of us here at 2nd Woodley Scout Group”.
Nikki Gibson, Sales and Marketing Director at Taylor Wimpey West London said: “It’s always a delight to hear that our work with local communities surrounding our developments is having such a positive impact. From encouraging positive relationships and co-operation, to creating safe places for young people to express themselves and have fun, youth engagement is important to Taylor Wimpey. We’re so pleased to be able to contribute to all of the hard work that is ongoing at 2nd Woodley Scout Group”.
