Little growers from a school in Longbridge, Birmingham, have been planting up their playground thanks to our West Midlands team, who donated daffodil bulbs, trowels and gardening gloves to Rednal Hill Infant School. The donation was made as part of our national Proud campaign to show its commitment and pride in leaving a lasting legacy in the communities in which it builds.
Having taken place on Thursday 22nd November, the bulbs were planted around the Rednal Hill Infant School grounds with help from two green-fingered Taylor Wimpey team members. The trowels and gloves will also come in useful in the future, as the school has its own gardening club.
Elaine Cartwright, Sales and Marketing Director at Taylor Wimpey West Midlands, said: 'We are proud to be building a new community at our Cofton View development and we were keen to support a local school.
'We were thrilled to see the children get stuck in with the planting and they can't wait to see the results of their work in the springtime.'
Anna Pendleton, Headteacher at Rednal Hill Infant School, said: 'It's great to see a company like Taylor Wimpey think about the wider community while it is building in the local area, and leave something beautiful behind that will last for years to come. We all loved getting to work with our new trowels and can't wait to see the results.'
