Our Chiltern region has ‘sponsored’ some of our youngest ever ‘apprentices’…
The children from Langdale pre-school have been honing their carpentry skills in an amazing new woodworking shed, donated by our Chiltern region.
The pre-school had sent a letter asking parents if they could help build a woodworking shed for the children; however one parent, a resident at our Millbrook Park development in Mill Hill thought that we could help.
Jacqui Winchester, manager of Langdale Pre-school said they couldn’t believe it when we offered to buy the shed for them:
“Originally we asked parents to give us a hand with building a woodworking shed – we were going to base it on a fabulous one we had seen for sale. We were thrilled when Linden Homes offered to buy it for us. We are so delighted and excited about it, as it’s something that we’ve wanted to organise for a while.
Simon Pendlebury is sales and marketing director Chiltern said:
“We were so pleased to be able to help out and buy the woodworking shed for the children. It’s absolutely great that they are so interested in working with wood and tools and learning the basics of such a great trade…With any luck some of the children could be so taken with carpentry that, in years to come, they might want to come and work for us!”
Wherever possible we source our bricks from the UK.
Our insulation process includes blowing insulation into cavity walls, which means our homes are better insulated because there are less air gaps.
