Residents at Crest Nicholson’s Bowood Gate, Wiltshire, have come together to raise funds towards the Derry Hill & Studley Heartbeat Foundation’s purchase of a defibrillator unit for the local community.
As the days begin to get longer and the temperature climbs, those with green-fingers are getting inspired as they are able spend more time outdoors enjoying their gardens. As spring sets in, mother nature seems to go into overdrive with plants and lawns growing at an incredible rate and even the most dedicated of us may struggle to maintain our gardens.
Crest Nicholson has made a valuable donation to assist the Derry Hill & Studley Heartbeat foundation with the purchase of a defibrillator unit for the Bowood Gate community. The £500 donation provides for a quarter of the funds needed for the full system to be installed, and the charity hopes it will spark further donations from other businesses in the area.
During the summertime, the garden becomes part of the home for many British families, hosting BBQs, garden parties and family events. However, as the colder weather draws in, socialising moves inside and even the most green-fingered of home-owners often neglect their gardens.
Award-winning developer Crest Nicholson has unveiled a new collection of three, four and five bedroom homes in Studley, Wiltshire. Bowood Gate will provide 53 traditionally styled homes, with many properties available using the Help to Buy scheme. The first homes will be ready to move into in Autumn 2018, with something for everyone from first time buyers to second steppers and growing families to downsizers.
