Scout helps to name our new development in Shoeburyness, Southend

We challenged members of a Scout troop to help us pick the perfect name for our upcoming development in Shoeburyness, Southend.

We asked 1st Shoeburyness Southend Estuary Scouts to take inspiration from the rich military history of Shoebury Garrison, which lies next to the development site and dates back to 1849. 

The Scouts put forward some excellent suggestions but in the end, the team developed "Artillery Mews" as the chosen name, inspired by an idea from a 13-year-old scout. To thank him for his contribution to the new development, we recently invited him to meet the sales team and also presented him with a £50 gift voucher of his choice.  
Michael O’Leary, Regional Operations and Sales Director at Taylor Wimpey London, said: “We always want to look at new and exciting ways we can come up with development names, and involving local Scout groups in this process is a great way of doing that.
“We thank Ollie for suggesting the perfect name for our new development.  Artillery Mews is more than just a development, it's a symbol of our commitment to creating spaces that reflect and honour local history. We are eagerly counting down the days until its grand opening.” 

Artillery Mews is due to launch this Summer.
