Gleeson teams up with local school to name the roads on new Boston development; Saxon Grange
Housebuilder Gleeson Homes has teamed up with Hawthorn Tree School in Boston, Lincolnshire to name the roads on its new development, Saxon Grange.
Hawthorn Tree School is adjacent to Saxon Grange, an exciting new development of 85 quality, affordable homes. As part of Gleeson’s Community Matters programme, Gleeson invited year five and six pupils to suggest street names for the new development’s network of roads.
With help from their teachers, the eager pupils went with a tree theme, linking to the school’s name with Hawthorn Close, Sycamore Way, Elm Road and Cherry Lane all being shortlisted by the housebuilder and later agreed by the local council.
With the new names agreed, the lucky winners were announced during a virtual Teams call streamed into the school’s assembly, where a member of the Gleeson regional team presented the winning names to huge applause.
Allen Marshall, Operations Director for Gleeson in the Midlands said:
“We are delighted to have worked with Hawthorn Tree School to name the new roads at Saxon Grange. The children have come up with some stunning names, which I’m sure the new homeowners will be very happy with.
“We are truly committed to engaging in the communities that we are working, before, during and after our construction phases leaving a positive, lasting, legacy for many generations to come.”
Each class was awarded a certificate, and a book token was donated to the school library by Gleeson.
Adam Jaques, Year 6 Teacher at Hawthorn Tree School commented:
“We were thrilled to be approached by Gleeson to help name the roads on its new development. The children thoroughly enjoyed researching trees and plants to come up with some exciting new road names and hope that we can be involved in future projects. We also look forward to welcoming new pupils who will live on the development and being able to share the background to the names of the roads".
Saxon Grange will bring 85 much needed, low cost, high quality two, three and four bedroom homes to Boston, Lincolnshire. Prices are anticipated to start from £125,995 for a two bedroom semi-detached home. The first homes at Saxon Grange will be released this summer, with the sales centre and show homes opening in the Autumn.
Not only will this new development bring financial contributions to the area, but it will also bring a host of employment opportunities for local people, sub-contractors and young people looking to start an apprenticeship in construction.
