Redrow Homes creates Bishop’s Cleeve community fund for deserving causes

Redrow Homes has created a £1,500 community fund to donate to the most deserving causes in Bishop’s Cleeve.

The house builder, which recently started work on its new Wendlescliffe development in Bishop’s Cleeve, is inviting local people or organisations to write to them, explaining why they need the money and how it would be used.

The team at Redrow South West will then make a decision on which causes will benefit from the funding boost with help from the community.

The community fund is designed to assist projects and organisations in Bishop’s Cleeve where Redrow is building 71 new three and four-bedroom family homes. It is open to both charities and community groups.

Hannah Pollard, sales director for Redrow South West, said: “We want to see the communities in all the areas where we build new houses thriving. Redrow is always keen to support organisations and initiatives near its developments.

“We take our responsibility towards the communities where we build homes very seriously.

“So, we’re keen to hear from people in Bishop’s Cleeve about how this community funding should best be spent to benefit as many local people as possible.”

The first houses at Wendlescliffe are due to be ready for occupation in the Autumn, while the whole development is forecast for completion by the middle of 2019.

Several homes are now being released for sale at pre-show home prices. These first homes are being sold from Andrews Estate Agents in Bishop’s Cleeve. 

By reserving early, buyers can tailor the final finishes to their taste.

House prices start from £284,995, for a three-bedroom semi-detached home with a single garage and driveway.

The Heritage collection homes’ architecture is inspired by the Arts and Crafts movement of the early 20th century, but with interiors designed around contemporary family living.
