As part of the Our Space Your Place scheme David Wilson Homes has helped St Chad’s Primary School to transform their playground.

Pupils at St Chad’s C of E Primary School in Winsford, have unveiled their stunning new allotment, thanks to assistance from David Wilson Homes North West (DWH North West).

The school successfully applied for funds through DWH North West’s charitable and community scheme, Our Space, Your Place, enabling it to transform a former disused play area in its grounds into an allotment space.

Along with a large consignment of top soil, the house builder contributed a £1000 cash donation to fund fencing works. As well as financial support, the school successfully drummed up practical help from other local businesses and organisations including Cheshire Fire Service’s Prince’s Trust volunteers, who took up the challenge to design and create the allotment.

Andrew Taylor, Our Space, Your Place Project Coordinator and Planning Director at DWH North West, comments: “At David Wilson Homes, we are privileged to get to know the communities in which we build homes. Supporting local causes which benefit those living close by is very important to us.

“St Chad’s is just a stone’s throw away from our Charlotte’s Place development, and we were impressed with their creative and educational plan for their land.  They had also secured help from other businesses – they just need a helping hand with the funds to turn their vision into reality.  We are delighted to have been able to assist.”

St Chad’s head teacher, Natalie Tomlinson, said, We look forward to the Spring when the children can begin to plant and to see the project take shape.  This would not have been possible without the support of companies like David Wilson Homes.”
