Supporting local communities

Stanwick Lakes is a 750 acre countryside attraction and nature reserve located in the Nene Valley, which is managed by Rockingham Forest Trust. It attracts visitors from all over the country and is a favourite leisure spot within the community, which is closeby to our Glenvale Park development.

Following the arson attack that destroyed a large part of the adventure playground, including the popular climbing tower, Stanwick Lakes and the local community joined forces to fundraise for damage repairs. In addition to rebuilding and improving the playground’s design, the funds raised will also help to provide increased security.

Kate Chadwick, Director of Rockingham Forest Trust, said: “We are so grateful for Taylor Wimpey’s support. It is great to have the local community and local businesses behind us during what has been an incredibly difficult time. We can’t wait to have the new climbing tower installed and see the children enjoying it once again.”

Olivia Peters, Sales and Marketing Director at Taylor Wimpey East Midlands, said: “We were saddened to hear of the arson attack and wanted to help support the efforts of the local community to rebuild the much loved playground. We look forward to seeing everyone back enjoying themselves!”
