Our care worker discount helps Norfolk family create their dream home

Date: Thursday 03 September 2020


NHS workers Liz, 50 and her partner Alison, 47 are looking forward to moving into their perfect home later this year, having been able to make use of our Care Worker Discount.

The couple are buying a new home at our Sewell Meadow development in Old Catton, Norfolk, with their two children aged 16 and 22. 

Liz said: “Taylor Wimpey really stood out to us during our search for a new home. Not only is Old Catton our ideal location, but we could tell that the properties at Sewell Meadow were of the highest quality.

“We chose the three-bedroom Gosford for a few reasons. It has a south facing garden, which is a must for me, we love the open plan layout, and the kitchen is amazing.” 

Liz and Alison work a 20 minute drive away from Sewell Meadow, at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital. As the couple are both key workers, the sales executives informed them that they qualified to receive a 5% discount on any new home. 

Alison said: “When the sales executives at Sewell Meadow called us to explain that we were eligible for the Care Worker Discount, we couldn’t quite believe it! Liz and I have been working on the frontline throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, so it means a great deal that our efforts have been recognised by Taylor Wimpey. 

“We’ve put the offer towards getting our kitchen upgraded to the highest specification, as well as turf in the rear garden, and we were able to get the flooring we wanted. All of this just wouldn’t have been financially possible without the discount.”

Buying a new home during the pandemic presents a number of challenges but Liz and Alison have nothing but praise for our team at Sewell Meadow. They are now looking forward to moving in when their home is ready this autumn.

Liz said: “The whole team at Sewell Meadow have been superb from the start. They have made the entire process extremely easy and straightforward for us. We also had our ‘meet the site manager’ meeting via Teams recently and it was brilliant. Now we just can’t wait to settle into our dream home!”
